The inspiration for these clutches came from a single vintage python clutch, which was part of Merci’s original collection when the Style Shop on NewlyWish launched earlier this year. This gorgeous one-of-a-kind python clutch was embellished with a magnificent vintage removable brooch. While this vintage piece has sold out, we couldn’t be happier that it’s beauty inspired an entire line of clutches, because why should only one lucky lady get to have all the fun!?
The clutches are offered in genuine python, embossed leather and faux leather and range in price from $135 to $395. Each clutch is adorned with a vintage-style brooch. The four styles of brooches are cleverly named after fashion icons of decades past that inspired them.
What’s our favorite part of this collection, you ask? It’s versatility. The various colors, sizes, styles and price points give you the opportunity to find the perfect clutch for any style and occasion. While the larger platinum, pearl, champagne and blush toned clutches make a perfect gift/ splurge for the bride-to-be, we also can’t help but think that some of the faux leather clutches make pretty magnificent bridesmaids gifts as well. And who wouldn’t want any of these beauties in their arsenal for a punch of color when they head out on the town!? Whether you’re headed to a formal affair or a beach-chic soiree, there’s a clutch in this collection for everyone.
We asked our Founder, Amanda Allen, and Marketing Director, Rosa Rotondi to share with us their must have bags…
