Summer has arrived and after searching the net for summer accesories I came across these two gorgeous, quirky summer clutches from Lulu Guinness. Catrin Jones the PA to Lulu Guinness kindly offered to give me some information and inspiration behind each product.........
(above) Sunblush Lips Clutch
This piece comes from the Spring Summer 2009 collection and the on-trend sunblush colour is one of the main shades of the season. The lips clutch is an iconic piece that is introduced into every new collection in a colour that relates to the pantone of that collection.
The lips have been so important to Lulu as they epitomize Glamour and add femininity to every outfit.(above) Kooky Eyed Cat Clutch
As the launch of Autumn Winter 2009 coincides with the 20th Anniversary of Lulu Guinness Handbags, Lulu wanted the collection to incorporate all the main icons she has continually used within her collections since the company was founded back in 1989. One of the icons is the cat, which appears in the laminate print with a number of other fellow icons such as the hand mirror, the rose basket and lips to name but a few. As well as on the laminate print, Lulu wanted the cat to appear elsewhere in the collection, so she designed a few feline-themed handbags, one of which of course was the Kook-Eyed clutch. It is witty, quirky and fun to wear. Purrfect.
