I am in a handbag/clutch frenzy...there are so many amazing young brands to discover...definitely inspirational. My latest obsession (since yesterday anyway) is Angel Jackson!!!
The brand has been around since 2005, but it wasn't really until about a year ago that it started making its way into the Vogues and ELLEs. I guess it really hit my radar this spring, but with so much to write about, I have to admit I sort of forgot how much I loved it. Lucky for me, I was introduced to the fab stylist Charlotte Collard and follow her blog religiously...she recently wrote about Angel Jackson and voila, I was compelled to share with my readers too.
The bags are so me...what more can I say. Boho/edgy - check, chic - check, sophisticated - check and 100% original and inventive...not easy to do these days in a sea of Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, et al. The clutches are definitely statement pieces and probably not for the fashion faint of heart. The patchwork of snakeskin and metallic leather in their Double Disco Atena Clutch is to-die...the color combos are perfect! I love the softer envelope shape as well...quite feminine. If you are still more of a handbag girl, all of the clutches do have straps that can be hidden...versatility and something for everyone.
I also adore the shape (slightly larger) of the Rainbow Jai Clutch which is part of their limited edition line...quantities are limited so click now. Definitely check out the site as their is so much more to choose from. I gravitate towards the patchwork, but you can also buy solid skin versions and for the really fashion forward, feather adorned little masterpieces.
I always talk about the non-It Bag, which simply means more underground, less ubiquitous and Angel Jackson certainly fits that bill. If I have said it once, I will say it again and again...don't run with the pack ladies, express yourselves through fashion...yes, clothes are a necessity, but wearing fabulous design is all about passion!!!
