It’s a tried-and-true street-style tactic: The weirder your bag, the more likely you are to get noticed by a photographer. And, judging from the street-style stars who blanketed New York, London, Milan, and Paris this month, we appear to have reached a tipping point for kooky, semi-ironic clutches.
Anna Dello Russo naturally led the charge, carrying a ham-hock bag by the Rodnik Band and a sushi-adorned clutch. Others opted for strange, completely out-out-context sayings, like Anya Ziourova’s clutch that featured a car clasp and the word vroom and Elisa Nalin’s Fire clutch. But if there was a clear winner for quirkiest designer, it would be Anya Hindmarch, who put everything from googly eyes to smiley faces on her bags and clutches.
