I have always thought that classic black and white looks chic on a handbag! It is a great way to make a bold statement without the use of flashy colors. So of course, the Marc Jacobs JJ Patent Leather Clutch was going to grab my attention! What I didn’t expect, however, is what I saw when I went in for a closer look!
Instead of that modern look you see with most black and white handbags, the Marc Jacobs JJ Patent Leather Clutch has a really vintage-y feel to it. Just look at that black acrylic starburst embellishment perched neatly on the flap closure! Resembling an over-sized brooch, it sort of reminds me of my grandmother’s costume jewelry. Interestingly, the look was softened a little bit with a woven ribbon-like embellishment that serves as an anchor for the acrylic starburst.
Adding to that vintage-y feel was the use of an off-white patent leather. It is more subtle than bright white, but you still get that bold look. The leather is stamped with a ripple-like texture, reminding me of a big puffy marshmallow! It just makes you want to give this clutch a big ol’ squeeze! Perfect for a fancy night out on the town!
