Maison Martin Margiela Large Laminated Lace Clutch
Martin Margiela is known for producing very interesting and, often, unusual designs when it comes to his handbags. It is often hard for me to imagine that he had once designed for companies such as HermÃ©s and Jean Paul Gaultier. Okay, maybe I can imagine him behind Jean Paul Gaultier. But HermÃ©s?
Pictured above is a new clutch from Maison Martin Margiela. It is called the Large Laminated Lace Clutch. To be honest with you, I do like the lace. After all, nothing is more elegant and romantic than the soft touch of lace. But what stopped me in my tracks, literally and figuratively, was the fact that this clutch is made of clear plastic. I’m sorry, but plastic just doesn’t mix with lace unless its a $40 bag by Chinese Laundry. But this is a Maison Martin Margiela clutch and it retails for $425. I’m sorry, but I tend to expect a little bit more for my 400 hard earned bucks.
The Maison Martin Margiela Large Laminated Lace Clutch measures 11.75″ x 7.5″ x 1″. The interior opens to two gusseted compartments and also features a large zippered pocket. You can find it at eLUXURY. Also note that the much smaller Maison Martin Margiela Laminated Lace Pouch is also available. It retails for $105.
