Maison Martin Margiela – Candy Clutch & Wallet

By Roni Brunn | March 26, 2010 | News

Concept pieces run a risk of looking too spot on, too gimmicky, and too attention-starved.  Sometimes they’re are worth that risk – when the concept is subtle enough, the functionality isn’t compromised, and the finish is well executed.  So, yeah, I’m endorsing a supersized candy clutch.

I have a thing for high gloss gold finish on objects that aren’t typically gold.  This bag gets a bit of sarcasm by association with the Martin Margiela label; the house has a way of rendering cuteness as edgy.  It more commonly goes for edgy as edgy, and tackling cuteness with that approach definitely pays off.


There’s also a wallet in the series.  It comes in gold and fuchsia:


Get the series at La Garçonne
