"Thanks!" to Irina, who shared the following email J.Crew sent this weekend.
The email not only features the Envelope Dreamweaver Clutch (item 74955; $325.00), but also shares its back story with customers:
We're dreaming in Deco... Our classic envelope clutch gets a punch of graphic glamour courtesy of our handbag designers. The collage of inspiration of their mood board? "Parisian wicker bistro chairs, Cubist paintings, marble-floored salon interiors- even these great black-and-white photos of expat types spilling out of Left Bank cafes." In luxuriously textured leather handwoven into an intricate geometric pattern and topped with gold hardware, this is one retro closet extra we can't keep our hands off.This clutch is super cute but the price tag is outrageous! Yeah, it is made out of leather but it is also small, measuring at 9"H x 14"W x 1/2"D. I do not know why J.Crew marked this clutch at such a high price point. For that price, I rather go with the Biennial Satchel (Item 57107; $348.00), which is considerably more versatile.
What are your thoughts on the Envelope Dreamweaver Clutch from J.Crew? Have you seen it in person? If so, please share! :)
