      Six Quirky Clutch Bags

      This season, clutch bags are getting quirky. Or quirkier than usual, that is. The fact is that clutches have always had a tendency to be a little more creative than the handbags you carry to work, or while travelling, for instance, but lately we’ve been noticing an increase in the…

      Bags of Style? Charlotte Olympia’s quirky clutch bags

      All clutch bags by Charlotte Olympia Charlotte Olympia may be best known for wacky footwear (ShoeperWoman has blogged about a whole lot of them), but the brand also has an interesting line in clutch bags, ranging from the quirky to the downright cookie. The movie theme is strong in this…

      Don’t take it to the airport: Vlieger & Vandam ‘Guardian’ gun clutch

      Well, this will at least guarantee you a more “interesting” than usual trip through security, no? Now, we’ve never found gun-related fashion to be in particularly great taste. This, on the other hand… …could just be an essential component of the Fashion Police uniform. Well, how else do you think we’re going…

      Fashion Ripper targets Free People handbag

      It’s been a long time since we last came up against our old nemesis, Jack the (Fashion) Ripper, but late last night our officers attended the crime scene shown above, and, well, the images speak for themselves, don’t they? We’ve no idea what these bags did to deserve the mauling…

      Anna Wintour Karl Lagerfeld bags

      Bring us the heads of Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld…

      Who wants to carry the disembodied heads of fashion heavyweights, like Karl Lagerfeld or Anna Wintour, slung over their shoulder all day? Wait, that was a stupid question, wasn’t it? Because, seriously, who DOESN’T want to do that? Well, now you can. But it’ll cost ‘ya. It’ll cost ya $646,…

      How to get ahead in fashion

      From the product description: “The intention of this piece is to simulate a person carrying a human head, it is meant to arouse curiosity and induce interesting reactions from passers-by, the humour in the psychology of this process was intentional.” In other words, if you don’t like this, you just…

      Cute or Kiddy-ish? Meadham Kirchhoff ‘Kitty’ clutch

      It’s been a while since we talked about age-appropriate dressing – or the ‘Dress Like a Toddler Trend’ as we call it – but this Meadham Kirchhoff clutch bag brought it back to mind. Now, the cat ladies amongst you may well be squealing in delight at the sight of the…

      JumpFromPaper two-dimensional handbags

      You’re possibly wondering why on earth we’re showing you drawings of handbags, rather than actual handbags, aren’t you? The answer is… we’re not: These are real handbags, which have been cleverly designed to look like two-dimensional drawings. They’re the work of JumpbyPaper, and we think they’re pretty awesome: all the…

      The Tardis Purse, for your inner geek

      You know what annoys us? When people – and by “people”, we mean “hipsters” – think that watching very mainstream TV shows, like Doctor Who, say, makes them “geeks”. And then they go around all the time saying things like, “Oh, I can’t wait for the next episode of Doctor…

      Miu Miu pink leather tote bag

      Wanted! Miu Miu pink grained-leather tote

      It’s not like us to go for something Barbie pink. Or something which costs $1,295, for that matter. As soon as our officers laid eyes on this pink Miu Miu tote bag, however, we knew we had to have it – even if only in the “fantasy shopping” sense. It…

      Model wearing three Jeffrey Cambell handbags

      Modelling is Hard: Jeffrey Campbell handbags edition

      These bags are from Jeffrey Campbell’s Girls We Hated in High School line. Luckily we were wearing sunglasses when we looked at them (The Fashion Police never remove our dark glasses) so we have no real problem with the bags themselves: we show you them purely because the expression on the…

      pink designer handbag

      Handbag of the Week: Pink D&G shoulder bag

      First of all, our apologies for bringing you a bag that costs $1,040 as our Handbag of the Week today. We can’t actually imagine wanting to spend that much on ANY bag, but if this one was a little bit – or, OK, a really BIG bit – cheaper, we’d…

      Handbag of the Week: Alexander Wang Small Emile Tote

      Alexander Wang and The Fashion Police haven’t always been the best of friends, but we must admit, with this bag, he’s managed to create an interesting shape without taking it too far into the realms of fashion-victim. This is the small Emile tote, which makes us wonder what the large…

      gigi flower clutchbag

      Handbag of the Week: Mar Y Sol ‘Gigi’ Flower Clutch

      Cute, colourful and $66… and if you care about such things, which we’re sure you don’t, it’s also a nice example of the current trend for combining bright colours, in this case yellow and pink. Our Handbag of the Week is by Mar Y Sol, and it’s also available in…

      asos-tooled-leather-satchel

      Handbag of the Week: ASOS green tooled leather satchel

      ASOS do a great line in leather satchels, as you may recall from previous Handbags of the Week. We like the fact that this one gets away from the traditional “school satchel” look by using a vibrant green colour and a tooled floral design. It’s bigger than it looks in…

      river-island-tan-doctors-bag

      Handbag of the Week: River Island tan Doctor’s bag

      We’ve been really loving River Island lately. Yes, go ahead, laugh all you want – we know the brand has a bit of a reputation for “Chav Chic” – but this summer they’ve had some gorgeous 50s style dresses, some great shoes, and now they also have this tan leather…
