Rafe Sirene Minaudiere | Solid Shell Evening Purse

Rafe Sirene Minaudiere | Solid Shell Evening Purse

If Chanel's Shell Clutch was too rich for your blood, perhaps the Sirene Minaudiere is more your speed. Considering the plain Chanel purse cost a hefty $33,000, this Rafe purse seems like a steal at only $395.

Kotur Levin Minaudiere | Large Striped Perspex Purse

Kotur shows us plastic can be truly fantastic with this Levin Minaudiere.

Judith Leiber Zodiac Minaudiere | Rounded Square Leo the Lion Evening Purse

Judith Leiber Zodiac Minaudiere | Rounded Square Leo the Lion Evening Purse

I might not always find Judith Leiber's distinctive accessories wearable, but her sparkling purses usually wow me. They're typically colourful creations that seem more like works of arts than simple accessories. However, strangely her Zodiac Minaudere purse has left me underwhelmed.

The Zodiac has all the ...


Jessica McClintock Fashion Minaudiere | Pleated Black Satin Purse with Rhinestone Flower

Jessica McClintock Fashion Minaudiere | Pleated Black Satin Purse with Rhinestone Flower

Jessica McClintock channels old world glamour with this Fashion Minaudiere. However despite a promising start, the design falls a bit flat for me.

Kotur Rene Mosaic Minaudiere | Mother of Pearl Tiled Purse

Kotur takes a break from its usual clutches to deliver this more upmarket Rene Mosaic Minaudiere.

Louis Vuitton Bijou Minaudiere | Elegant Tortoiseshell Logo Evening Purse

Louis Vuitton shows it's got the stuff it takes to make minaudieres with the best of them. It's just a shame that the label still hasn't learned the art of restraint.

Kathrine Baumann Money Bag Minaudiere | Stained Glass Floral Purse

Kathrine Baumann takes a break from her playful novelty minaudieres to create this chic money bag purse.

Kathrine Baumann Rosebud Minaudiere | Red Crystal Covered Flower with Tassel

Kathrine Baumann Rosebud Minaudiere | Red Crystal Covered Flower with Tassel

As a woman I'm predisposed to loving flowers, but I also find the real blooms a bit disappointing. One moment they're looking splendid and the next they're withering away. So perhaps a Rosebud purse from Kathrine Baumann is the perfect solution.

I'm going to forget about the price ...


Judith Leiber Cut-Corner Minaudiere | Beautiful Crystal Decorated Box Clutch

Judith Leiber Cut-Corner Minaudiere | Beautiful Crystal Decorated Box Clutch

Literal rather than metaphorical corners have been cut in this stylish Cut-Corner Minaudiere from Judith Leiber.

Inge Christopher Donatella Minaudiere | Lizard Embossed Petrol Leather Box Clutch

Inge Christopher shows us that a minaudiere doesn't have to be covered in crystals to attract attention with its Donatella purse.

Clara Kasavina Venus Minaudiere | Striking Metal Ball Purse

Clara Kasavina Venus Minaudiere | Striking Metal Ball Purse

Clara Kasavina Zeta Crystal Encrusted Minaudiere | Swarovski Decorated Rose Purse

Clara Kasavina Zeta Crystal Encrusted Minaudiere | Swarovski Decorated Rose Purse

Judith Leiber Chatelaine Minaudiere | Elegant Crystal Leopard Print Clutch

Judith Leiber Chatelaine Minaudiere | Elegant Crystal Leopard Print Clutch

Few designers divide opinion on BagBunch as much as Judith Leiber. Her minaudieres are extravagant, luxurious, quirky, and often downright ridiculous. But I think she may have hit on a winner with the Chatelaine.

There's nothing subtle about this leopard printed, crystal encrusted purse, but nor ...

Dan W Snakeskin Archway Clutch | Decorative Art Deco Minaudiere

Dan W Snakeskin Archway Clutch | Decorative Art Deco Minaudiere

This is, hands down, one of the wackiest handbag designs that I have seen in a long while!

Inge Christopher St Petersburg Clutch | Crystal Encrusted Snakeskin Minaudiere

Inge Christopher St Petersburg Clutch | Crystal Encrusted Snakeskin Minaudiere

There is a certain touch of Alexander Wang styling to this over-the-top box clutch from Inge Christopher, just without a price tag into the thousands of dollars.

Of course, this edgy St Petersburg minaudiere isn't quite as a stylish as some of the Wang styles on the market. The difference, I think, ...


Inge Christopher Mumbai Minaudiere | Gold Snakeskin Leather Evening Purse

Inge Christopher Mumbai Minaudiere | Gold Snakeskin Leather Evening Purse

Inge Christopher claims to take its inspiration from the Far East for this Mumbai minaudiere. But this luxe purse with its chic styling seems like it'd be much more at home in an urban environment.

La Regale Mirror Minaudiere | Small Mirrored Gold Oval Clutch Purse

La Regale Mirror Minaudiere | Small Mirrored Gold Oval Clutch Purse

Its name suggests this clutch is ready for the discotheque, but this Mirror Minaudiere from La Regale would look just as comfortable at your next black tie do.

Serpui Marie Straw Minaudiere | Hot Pink Box Clutch

Serpui Marie Straw Minaudiere | Hot Pink Box Clutch

It is rare that you see a minaudiere that isn't metallic, or shiny, or made out of some obscure hard substance. To see one made out of straw is even rarer.

La Regale Metallic Minaudiere | Dramatic Velvet Lined Clutch

La Regale Metallic Minaudiere | Dramatic Velvet Lined Clutch

La Regale has made a very clutchable bag with this ergonomically designed metallic clutch!

Rafe Maryanne Dramatic Minaudiere | Stunning Panelled Evening Bag

Rafe Maryanne Dramatic Minaudiere | Stunning Panelled Evening Bag

There are handbags that are functional, and then there are handbags that are art. This Rafe clutch definitely falls in the category of art and sculpture!

I hate to say it, but you can see why this purse costs a mighty $495. OK, so that is a lot of money, but this is ...


Inge Christopher Mika Minaudiere | Leather Cherry Blossom Print Purse

Inge Christopher Mika Minaudiere | Leather Cherry Blossom Print Purse

Leather rarely graces minaudieres, and when it does it tends to add sneering attitude. Inge Christopher softens the bad boy fabric with flowers to create his Mika minaudiere.

The pale metallic cherry blossoms are illuminated against the dark leather. These delicate Japanese blooms make this hard-edged case a real thing of modern ...


Limited Edition Exotic Luxury Minaudieres from Linda Masquefa

Limited Edition Exotic Luxury Minaudieres from Linda Masquefa

Individuality means everything to Californian handbag designer Linda Masquefa. No more than five Linda Masquefa minaudieres of a single design are ever produced.

Judith Leiber Cupcake Clutch | Sweet “Sex and the City” Styled Crystal Cake Minaudiere

Judith Leiber Cupcake Clutch | Sweet “Sex and the City” Styled Crystal Cake Minaudiere

There were so many bags to lust after in the original Sex and the City movie, but the one that really caught my eye was the Judith Leiber clutch carried by Charlotte's daughter. Lily's little strawberry cupcake purse may have sold out quickly, but the designer's now released another one which ...


Timmy Woods Bling Santa Purse | Interesting Seasonal Novelty Shoulder Bag

Tamlin & The Fall Debuts Line of Luxurious Handcrafted $20K Minaudieres

Tamlin & The Fall Debuts Line of Luxurious Handcrafted $20K Minaudieres

Kitschy minaudieres from designers like Kathrine Baumann and Timmy Woods are certainly unique but not exactly what I picture spending hard-earned cash on for this type of ornamental jewelry-like bag. Swarovski-encrusted Barbie heads and shiny Santa faces might be quirky and whimsical but aren't necessarily my style.

The debut line of luxury minaudiere ...


Timmy Woods Kris Kringle Purse | Novelty Kitsch Christmas Themed Bag

Timmy Woods Kris Kringle Purse | Novelty Kitsch Christmas Themed Bag

Timmy Woods does occasionally produce some genius bags. Lovingly constructed out of luxury materials, they are glossy and unusual and more like art than a handbag.

When not designing these purses, however, Timmy Woods has a strange fondness for novelty bags. With bags like this little Kris Kingle Christmas purse it is apparent that ...
