I’ve been obsessed with the idea of having an oversized clutch ever since I watched the controversial cult movie “Lust Caution“. I found the movie plodding mainly due to my poor grasp of Mandarin and because the subtitling on my copy of the DVD was terrible!
But that did not detract from the visual feast of vintage fashion that was ever present throughout the movie. I was most taken in by the oversized clutches that the main actress played by Tang Wei carried throughout the film.
They looked so classic and elegant and because they are large, they look like the could fit a ton of stuff in there. She ably demonstrated this in one scene when she was throwing all her cosmetics and little things into her clutch. I love the idea!
I’ve been looking locally for a nice and affordable large or oversized clutch since then but to no avail. Some of the clutches I see here have a cheap feel to the vinyl or patent leather. Does anyone know where I can find a nice leather or canvas oversized clutch whether in Malaysia or an online store that ships internationally?
