The Fetish Box Clutch comes to us from Yavan Mispelaere, designing for Diane Von Furstenberg. Luxury and fantasy come together to incarnate a number of daily nonessentials: a watch a dice, an eye, and a mouth all become accessories by being transformed into mini clutch purses.
Since 1974, DVF’s pieces have been revolutionizing the entire history of fashion: the iconic wrap dress exudes audacity, and, unsurprisingly, can always be found on women of character. This fall’s Rendez-vous collection fits into the same category, where humor curbs conventional fashion: for example, these nine styles of surreal clutches, made like secret boxes.
With a very limited quantity available – between 25 and 50 numbered copies for each style – the clutches were all hand-made in the design house’s Italian workshops. Leather, crystal, and various embroideries come together with fantasy motifs: from red hearts made of pearl to watch dials, by way of cloud or telephone prints, the inside is decked out with an eye-shaped mirror that will no doubt bring luck and protection to its owner.
