I'm a fan of most things ridiculous. So when I saw this mother of a clutch at the Proenza sample sale (the gift that keeps on giving), I could hardly say no. In truth, I said no a few times while I was perusing the racks, but I just couldn't get away. It looks like a briefcase! You can fit a laptop in it! It has lots of metal and holes! And a lock without a key! But seriously guys, you actually can fit a laptop in here, and it's not as hard to carry around as one might think a gigantic bag without a strap would be! It even looks, as Nietzsche might say, uber professional. You can't say that about many (if any?) clutches. I scoured the web for other examples of a work-appropriate clutch, and besides the rote oversized envelope clutch, there don't seem to be many? WHY? Some of us would like to look just a tad bit flippant and fashionably privileged while being uber serious career ladies. I mean, for uber serious.
In any event, this Proenza bag means that we can and must keep the idea of the workplace clutch alive people, it DOES EXIST.
