wanted: giorgio armani clutch

giorgioarmani01

when i saw this image on the internet, i became obsessed. i looked high and low, up and down, round and round… you get the point. i couldn’t figure out what bag it was. how can such a beautiful bag with the similar understated elegance of celine and hermes go so undetected? then finally, i opened the latest bazaar magazine and there it is. i’ve never paid much attention to giorgio armani (besides their incredible beauty line), but this clutch is really making my heart flutter. it’s currently available for purchase on bazaar’s website. i’m a little taken back by the over 2 grand price tag. afterall, it’s only a clutch and i’m trying to save up for my ultimate bags (the hermes kelly and constance) … but it’s so pretty!

that clutch is GORGEOUS! Don’t think I could warrant spending such money on it though, haha! Love the oversized tan coat with it too.

While I agree that it might just be too much to spend on a clutch, I love how understated it is! The closure is gorgeous.

I can certainly see the allure. Glad you found out what bag it is but I also feel that $2k is too much for a tiny clutch. I prefer bigger bags and the two small flaps/clutches I have were not regret purchases per say but they have barely seen the light of day. πŸ™‚

wow it’s gorgeous…I love black & gold, so simple & sleek. It reminds me of the first purse I ever purchased when I was in high school (ahh…memory lane), but this one is so pretty, it exceeds by far the one I have stored in my memory, lol

I guess if you really had to decide, you’d have to ask yourself how often you’d use it, for what occasion you’d use it for, and just what you could carry in there given its small size. Like you said it’s a clutch, and not a regular handbag, so I guess that limits you. On the other hand, it’s so sleek, and the photos online show that it has plenty of pockets & compartments!

i like small bags, but my problem is that it’s a lot of $ for a small bag AND it’s a GA… i know, i know, i’m a brand whore.

It *is* beautiful! Simple and elegant… that said, I think the Hermes Kelly is an incredible goal to have, and not to lose sight of… Then again, if you get a great tax refund coming your way this year, it might make sense to consider…. πŸ˜‰

Discipline! I’m excited for you to get your Kelly! It’s such a classic bag, the GA one reminds me a lot of the Kelly’s shape. πŸ™‚

It’s so pretty! I’ve never seen it before but I love that is so different to the “IT” bags we all dream of, I think you should go for it! It’s totally timeless and cute.
