Clutches, especially hard-case styles like minaudières, have always teetered on the line between art and function. For spring, their often simple rectangular shapes provide a canvas for design that is artlike in execution. Kate Spade New York offers a playful camel motif as art of its Marrakech-inspired collection. Chanel’s tech-friendy group produced this computer mainframe bag, while Sophia Webster reimagined peacock feathers on her minaudière.
