My Thoughts

A beautiful glitter designed, acrylic shell clutch bag named the 'Candy' by footwear and accessories designer Jimmy Choo. This unique clutch bag has glitter confetti 'paillettes' in a teal colour underneath the hard acrylic outer shell, whilst the back of the bag is a solid teal colour. The sides are made of suede, also in a luxurious shade of teal. The opening flap has a unique asymmetric design, and opens via the ribbed acrylic panelling. This flap is secured by a metal snap button in the middle of the bag. The light gold shoulder chain is fixed by 2 eyelets and can not be removed. If you wish to just hold the bag and not used the shoulder chain, you can tuck the chain inside the slit pocket. The inside of the flap is lined with teal suede, whilst the main section is a grey satin, with a leather Jimmy Choo plague on the pocket. The bag looks fantastic with dark coloured high heels, and dark blazers. The bag would be ideal for dinner dates, or nightclubs due to the touch outside shell. As the outside is acrylic, it will scratch, so I would suggest avoiding clothing with metal studs, or zippers which could rub against it, if you are using it as a shoulder bag.

The 'Candy' clutch has been seen on many celebrities in many colours. These celebrities include Victoria Justice, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Elizabeth Banks, Kate Beckinsale, Jaime King, Poppy Delevingne, Erin Heatherton, Emmy Rossum, Rose McGowan, Jamie Chung, Naya Rivera and Miranda Kerr.

I have recommend styling this bag with a 'Cold-shoulder' off-white crepe top by Proenza Schouler, a asymmetric ruffled black stretch-crepe skirt by Givenchy and a pair of 'Debbie' black suede by Charlotte Olympia. The retail price for this bag was £625 GBP
