Three reasons why I love this clutch: 1) It’s by Lizzie Fortunato – a fave, 2) it’s got sweet pink and red kisses AND leather involved, 3) it introduced me to illustrator Bernadette Pascua. I know it’s got a bit of a Valentine’s Day vibe, but I think it’s so cute how the lips are embroidered and how the soft, sweet colors are contrasted with the navy leather. I just picture it with an oversized shirt (like this) and shorts (like these) as the perfect detailed accessory that would add a splash of personality.
Lizzie (the designing sister behind the LF line), collaborated with Bernadette Pascua on pieces for the “Super Nana” (French slang for “Beach Babe”) collection, including this “Safari” clutch with lips. Bernadette is the author of her blog Decade Diary, where she shares daily inspiration and illustrations… I love that Lizzie invited her to collaborate because she is such a big fan of hers – after viewing Bernadette’s portfolio it’s obvious why:) Check out the rest of the “Super Nana” Collab as well as the Lizzie Fortunato jewels for SS13 here!
