The Shirley multicolore is a bold, chirpy clutch that is young but doesn’t come across as juvenile. It isn’t really too formal so I think, only because of its white canvas that explodes with Murakami’s signature colours. This was Takashi Murakami’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton for Spring/Summer 2005. It features gold hardware, an S-lock and a velvet-touch burgundy alcantara lining. The edges of the clutch are trimmed in natural vachetta leather which matures and gains a darker shade with use.
It’s a slim clutch that holds only your essentials from lipgloss to mobile phone and keys. Throw this into your night bag if staying out, it’s so sleek, it’ll fit unnoticed. It measures11″L 1.5″W 4.5″H. 9.5 handle drop. The strap to the clutch is removable.
I’m loving its versatility.
