Handbag of the Week: Dsquared2 Bug Clutch

We’re not sure whether you’ll find the bejewelled bugs that cover this Dsquared2 clutch bag cute or creepy. We suspect quite a few of you may go for “creepy”, and we understand: although bugs are somewhat fashionable at the moment (Now there’s a phrase for the “things we never thought we’d say” files!) they’re not the most conventional of clutch bag embellishments, are they? Even so, there’s still something about this that appeals to us, and if you like your “pretty” toned down with something just a touch darker, it may well appeal to you, too.

If it does, head over to Zappos Couture, where you can buy it for $1,299, making these some of the most expensive bugs around!

    Actually, bugs go in and out of fashion in jewelry often. My great-aunt has a blue rhinestone fly from the 40s that is gorgeous. If you wanted to duplicate this look without spending $1,299, try antique stores for rhinestone bugs and add them to a plain clutch. Hmm….

    I love it! And a few years ago I had bug hair clips that I wore to death. I think that if they’re done delicately, bugs can be cute as accessories.

    Hmm… it’s a shame because the bugs make the bag UG-LY! If it was just the flower thing, it would be gorgeous…
