Since I was 16 years old, I’ve always LOVE Louis Vuitton! And now having the options to personalized my own Louis Vuitton bag is a dream comes true! Having a personalized bag will definitely makes your bag stand out in the crowd compared to others. I personally will only get the carry-on size bags like the Keepall and Pegases rolling luggage, because why would you want to check-in your luscious Louis Vuitton bags under a plane and they will just throw it around and ruin the bag!? I would certainly only carry it onto the airplane or take it in my car for weekend
get aways.

Crazy About Designer Men Clutch! Luxe-Gifts.com Men & Women Spring Summer 2010 Clutch & Purse Review

Posted in Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 18, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Spring is just around the corner, as I’m start to put away your heavy winter clothes and accessories & I found myself can’t stop checking out those super chic designer cluthes! Some is in hard metal case, some in soft envelope form leather material, pink one, gold one I want them all! Choosing the right clutches to go with your spring summer look is important! even tho is a small accessories but it says a lot about you! And in spring 2010 Men’s fashion show in Milan, Paris & London, a “Men Clutch Bag” is back in fashion in full force!

Some of you might ask: What is a Clutch? A clutch purse is not seen on an everyday basis as often as it used to be, but these little gems are still around in various forms. They are usually small purses designed to be carried or “clutched” in the hand. Some have a detachable chain or leather strap so they can also be worn hanging from the shoulder.

The history of purses in general dates back to the Babylonian era. Purses were generally used in religious ceremonies then, and the modern wit might quip that they still have a holy significance to a woman. People figured out that they were useful for carrying money and valuables and purses became popular, worn on belts by men and women.

In the early 1800s, women began carrying reticules, the forerunner of the modern handbag, looking very much as some styles of the clutch purse look today. A lady of quality carried her handkerchief and smelling salts in her reticule, along with, perhaps, a packet of rice papers to dull a shiny spot on the face. The clutch purse has been popular ever since.

The clutch purse went out of fashion in the early 19th century, but experienced resurgence in popularity during World War II. With rationing, the smaller clutch required less material for manufacture and fit in well with a wartime mindset.


Until recently, most women would only be carrying a lipstick, compact mirror, Mobile phone, and perhaps a single key or, if it was an evening out with girlfriends, some cash. Nowadays, what with cell phones and wallets and other necessities, it’s much more difficult to go out with a tiny bag. For the nights when you don’t need to carry much, you can still get a charming clutch that holds just what you need and sets off your outfit as well

I’ve been carrying around my Balenciaga, Gucci Sigrid & YSL clutch under my arm for a week, and suddenly, life is easier! I grab everything I need, all at once on my way out the door, which is too much to fit into a pocket-sized wallet.

So I’m particularly delighted with the newest unexpected twist menswear runways – the introduction of clutches to men’s wardrobes.

Here are some pics of “Men Clutch” that’s showing up at many Men’s Fashion shows

Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2010

Bottega Veneta Fall Winter 2009


Gucci Fall Winter 2009

If you think about it, it’s really not far-fetched. Men carry briefcases and portfolios, which are just as hard to carry as a clutch. So why not switch out an attaché case for a sleek Gucci envelope? Plus, these days, we’re carrying cell phones, wallets, Blackberries, keys and billions of other things! A giant messenger bag isn’t always a convenient, or appropriate, accessory for a night out. Look at Karl Lagerfeld (Design director of CHANEL) carry his own brand KL clutch out for a casual walk, super stylish & practical accessory for both women & Men!

The 21-year-old Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted walking through busy street in London accessorized his outfit with a man clutch! I think it’s super stylish!

Ok ok, enough about the men! Now let’s look at some of the beautiful clutches for the Ladies!

For a casual look, an oversized clutch that can hold your wallet, sunglasses, lipstick and cell phone will be the perfect choice. Casual clutches are generally made of genuine leather, patent leather, suede or satin in pleasurable colors and designs. For an elegant clutch, a smaller version is preferred, with space for cash, credit cards, ID and a slim cell phone. Clutch bags look best with a pair of high heels. Once you start carrying a clutch bag, you will love its handy character, and will like grab it and go.

If the iconic Union Jack clutch is too patriotic for you, perhaps you’d like to try this Alexander McQueen Patent Leather Knuckle Duster Clutch. We have already seen this type of clutch before, but interesting enough, this new rendition comes in an exciting silhouette.

Instead of coming in the usual square-y box shape of clutch, this clutch is in a rectangular shape, measuring about 9 x 3¼ x 1½ inches. It probably resembles to that of an eye glasses’ box, but of course, in a chicer design. Well actually, this exudes tough-chic appeal, which should not anymore be surprising considering that it has always been a signature for Alexander McQueen.

Made from exotic python skin in black, It has black gun metal framing, and the interesting knuckle ring handle also comes in the same tone. This then has an attached jeweled skull and stone knuckle duster, giving this tough-looking clutch a hint of dark goth femme glam! I am already on the waiting list for it.

It is very clear that this Alexander McQueen Faithful Leather Glove Clutch is for the rocker type fashionistas. Well, we can’t deny that most of his creations exude that kind of appeal, but there are some that only shows a hint of such. Seeing this particular clutch obviously shows Alexander McQueen’s main theme and you don’t even have to guess if this is intended to look classic or simply tough.

This Alexander McQueen clutch measures about 12½ x 6½ x 1½ inches, plus it also has angled zippers on the fold-over flap, and opening the clutch would also show extra zipped pocket. It is made from distressed black leather, which already brings a hint of toughness to it; but what actually makes this even tougher is the snap closure glove design on the flap.I’m not sure if you can slip your hand in it for a unique carrying option, but if it is intended to function as such, then this is without a doubt, exceptionally designed. But if not, this clutch is still fantastic anyway.

No one speaks the “Casual Hamptons Country Chic” better than designer Michael Kors! This clutch is mad with braded rattan with delicious dark chocolate brown leather strap as closure. Measure 4.5” L x 10.5” W x 2.5” D. Perfect size to fit all of our necessities in there and looking so chic without looking like you are trying too hard!

When you think of sparkling evening bags who do you think of first? Judith Leiber of course! She is the master of using Swarovski crystals to create unique & elegant patterns on her super exclusive handbag collections! I particularly love this “Marguerite Floral Minaudiere” Clutch, the vibrant floral color just screams spring & summer cheer! It’s measures 3” H x 6.75” W x 2.25” D

This slim yet multi compartment clutch & being slightly larger than other clutches, it’s ideal for using day or night!! The picture of elegance in iconic LV monogram canvas. Measure 10.5” L x 6” H x 1.1” D

Ok ok! We all have weakness for those fabulous goodies from our favorite designer brands and love treating ourselves with something pretty from their collections. But normal fashionistas like the most of us usually get a latest ” it ” bag, cashmere sweaters, shoes or sunglasses from our favorite designers, but if those items no longer tickle your fancies, then why not pick up these “Gaudy-Fab” items from the artist Peter Gronquist for his art exhibit “The Revolution will be Fabulous” in Los Angeles! So you can be shooting caribou in style! haha…. each weapon looks god-awful. That said, I’m sure they’ll sell like hot cakes. Oh wait, they have.

I think my favorite Gaudy Weapon will be the CHANEL bazooka! haha
