Lucite, Perspex, Methacrylate....

Call it what you want, clutch bags fabricated from a clear & hard plastic are an accessory must-have for Summer 2013. It started with the popularity of Charlotte Olympia's Pandora Clutch and then obssession really kicked in when Chanel released their Boy Brick this spring.
If the thought of spending on £550 on a evening clutch is a little extravagant, then bear in mind you can pay ten times that for the Chanel see-thru mini box bag version! My advice would be to nip into Zara and bag their methacrylate clutch for just £19.99.
Philip Lim said recently of this new fabric trend '"Perspex feels fresh because in a subversive way it's like the wearer is saying 'I have nothing to hide' " Show you have nothing to hide by filling your clutch with a couple of gorgeous goodies for everyone to spy and admire. Make like BBC 6 music radio DJ, Lauren Laverne and protect your phone with a Marc by Marc Jacobs creature case. Lauren went for Shorty, yet here at The Style Eye we are loving little lime green Rue. There will be just enough room for a lipstick, so make it a good one. Beautifully cased and smelling divine, YsL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick should do the trick.
