It’s always nice to keep a smile on your face, but what about one on your clutch? Faces seem to be surfacing all over bags, some barely visible and others plain as day like on Acne’s Akoya clutch (ivory on shopbazaar.com for $850, marbled blue on My Theresa for $850). The face isn’t even smiling, though – it looks like the emoticon your friend sends you when she’s having an eh kind of day. And in case the message isn’t clear enough, the same design comes in a larger size (on shopbazaar.com for $1,100). What do you think of these extra expressive bags – snob or slob?
Fendi Mini Monster Baguette Bag: I gave credit to Fendi for being in on the joke with this furry friend, but there was nothing funny about the 7k price tag. At just under 4 grand, this monster still frightens, yet in the right hands, I bet he can be tamed. At Matches for $3,915.
Paris House Happy Face Coin Purse: Paris House’s cheeky leather goods always offer up a little quote inside – this one says “Don’t be stupid I’m a disaster.” Is this self-deprecation meant to deter us from spending our pennies?? On Shopbop for $78.
Walt by Walter van Beirendonck Vintage Puk Puk Clutch: While at first glance, this is pretty subtle, if stare for long enough, this little guy starts to look like a mini robot (with really big teeth). On Farfetch for $134.13.
Charlotte Olympia Kitty Clutch: When Halloween’s just a week away (if you don’t have a costume yet, stay tuned for Kelly’s easy costume ideas!), what better is there to tote around than a black cat? Pre-order at Nordstrom for $995.
Lulu Guinness Fifi Macel Wave Doll Face Patent Clutch: Lulu Guinness’s iconic doll face makes an appearance on this Rorschach-style clutch (anyone else see a unicorn with really great lashes?). On Luisa via Roma for $513.
