Rebecca Minkoff Rendezvous Patent Clutch
Rebecca Minkoff — a name that has been circulating around the Bag Forum a lot lately. In fact, for many TBF members, a Rebecca Minkoff bag is truly one worth coveting! So why is there so much love for Rebecca Minkoff handbags? Is it the gorgeous colors? Or the super soft leather? Or is it the amazingly comfortable, yet chic, style that can be found in each of these handbags? If I were to ask my fellow TBF’ers, I’m sure they would say it is all of these things (and much, much more)!
Now everyone is familiar with the Morning After Bag (the bag that Minkoff designed for actress Jenna Elfman). This bag, along with many of her other styles, are known for being big and roomy. So when I saw this Rendezvous Clutch, I was a little bit surprised. Not because Rebecca Minkoff hasn’t made small bags before, because she has. But because she somehow made this clutch the size of, what I would consider, a normal handbag. I realize that magazine clutches were hot for awhile, and maybe they still are. But when I look at this bag, I find myself wanting to stick a shoulder strap on it. Perhaps its the fact that it has metal feet and a zippered closure (as opposed to a fold-over style). Aside from this little set back though, I do find the purple patent leather to be quite delightful. But then again, who doesn’t like purple patent? Yummy!
The Rebecca Minkoff Rendezvous Patent Clutch measures 14″ x 11″ x 3″ and it retails for $375. The interior features two multifunction pockets and the closure comes complete with an actual lock and key. Available in various colors, but you can find it in Purple over at shopbop.com.
