When I think of minimalistic designs, I immediately think of Jil Sander. She truly is the master! For her, minimalistic does not have to equal boring. She will often use ultra bright colors to add some interest to her otherwise simple pieces. That is what I like about her designs! So what happens when she produces a piece that is just plain… well, plain? You get this clutch you see pictured here. Introducing the Jil Sander Milton Clutch!
What do you see when you look at this clutch? The square bottom and fold-over top sort of reminds me of a lunch bag. You know, the brown paper ones that the “cool” kids would use (as opposed to a plastic lunch box). Oddly, I find this clutch to be somewhat cute. I am not sure why though. Perhaps it is just the simple idea that it folds over the way it does. I do like how the bottom is square and flat. All the contents would fall nicely on the bottom rather than being stacked on top of one another. I can just imagine being able to open the top up really wide and seeing everything that is in there. You can’t say that about a lot of clutch styles. My only regret with this style is that I have yet to see it in a bright color. Hot pink would be nice!
Retails for $620. Also available in a smaller size.
