Eiffel Tower Clutch by Timmy Woods
If you’re a lover of French fashion, or even historically renown architecture, you can now wear a piece of the culture’s heart in the palm of your hand. The new limited edition Eiffel Tower Clutch by Timmy Woods looks just like a mini version of the world famous tower which sits in the heart of the fashion world, Paris, France. I couldn’t believe my eyes when when I came across this clutch. I mean, I’m really not even sure which words I’d use to describe how this looks on someone. I’m sort of stuck between uinique-looking or just plain tacky…
Personally, I wouldn’t wear this limited edition piece. Though I do admire Woods’ artistic creation and how he incorporated architecture with fashion. I think this miniaturized take on Paris’ landmark clearly and cleverly ties into fashion since the city and it’s designers are a major part of the industry. And as for the clutch itself, it is made of light weight acacia wood and even comes with a silky bengaline strap so you can carry the mini-Eiffel over your shoulder. And despite it’s inconsistent shape (for a clutch, that is), it has enough room to hold credit cards, money, lipstick and even features an interior pocket for your cell. But overall, I think this limited edition piece is fit for a spot on a shelf or in a case with all of the other collector’s pieces.
