Hype James Clutch | Art Deco Convertible Cross Body Purse

Posted on: Dec 30

Hype James ClutchA pop of cobalt blue helps make this art deco inspired James clutch from Hype stand out from the crowd.

I really like the James' art deco styling. Its rectangular turn-lock and elegant seaming are a bit of a throwback to the past, but they also seem surprisingly fresh. The soft lambskin is also lovely, although its gray base color is questionable. A paler hue would have seen the blue panel stand out even more and made the purse seem less drab.

The James is a slender creature, as the most elegant of clutch purses often are, but Hype does its best to keep it serviceable. With a card slot and array of pockets you could leave your wallet behind and use the main compartment for more important things. The space also has a chain strap tucked away, but you can remove it completely if you'd prefer to minimize the clutter.

I'd ordinarily hesitate to spend close to $200 on a clutch but the James' versatile styling is tempting me. This is the sort of purse that would look just as fetching with jeans or an evening gown. If you can work it into your everyday wardrobe you're likely to see value here.
