I am totally obsessed with Carmen Woods’ clutch bags. They look like they’re that kind of super squishy, comfy clutch bag that you can just throw everything in and throw about on a night out. Having said that, there’s something about those vibrant colours, uninterrupted by boring functional zips – tassels are so much better – that is wholly glamorous and fun. That tangerine is sure to pep up any outfit; I’m really taken with the metallic and gorgeous ornate patterns too though..
Perhaps the best thing though is that Carmen has a shop in one of the towns next to my hometown in Essex. Home grown talent with an international twist (Carmen lived and worked in Ravenna, Italy) – it doesn’t get better than this.
