Envelope Clutch Love: Catherine Rapetti

We just caught wind of the Catherine Rapetti Spring 2009 collection and had to give a shout out to the envelope clutch in her lineup of handbags and accessories. This sleek shape is one of the only ways in which you can convince us that a clutch has any place in fashion save for black tie happenings. That is, the absence of a strap or handles on a bag can prove inconvenient if your trying to hail a taxi, answer your cell phone, or use the ladies room. This shape though, well, let's just say it comes under the heading of "it might not be convenient but it looks so good I don't care". This bag is generous in size (14" W x 8" H) and retails for $380. Its sleek menswear-referencing look is what really drew us in, and there is evidence to prove that Rapetti's choice of shape will be a popular one come Spring. Just check out these current season examples from Brian Atwood, Maison Martin Margiela, and Loefffler Randall for proof.
