Valorie: The Clutches of Anya Hindmarch

The British designer first started her career at such a young age of 19. She was inspired to enter the fashion industry by her love of polished leather handbags, most notably the duffel bag worn by most Italian chics at the time. Pursuing her study in Florence, her early products are heavily influenced by Italian design principles.

The handbag collection is chic and classy, yet affordable on that level of quality. I find that her Valorie clutches are particularly outstanding. Her individualistic style is captured in the clutches' clear design, perfected with the simple square turnlock. The selection ranges from patent leather, glittery, or matte finish. I think they will appeal more to fashionable youth who wish to convey an image of effortless sophistication with a flair of fun in their looks. It instantly adds glamour to any outfit, from cocktail parties to your black tie portfolio.

Check out the messenger bags too.
