When I first saw Lanvin’s latest Satin Patch Flap Front Clutch it cried out the famous artist, Piet Modrian.While I appreciate Mondrian’s iconic paintings and would love to own one, I’m not loving Lanvin’s Modrian inspired clutch. Yes, I’ve heard the saying…”Art Imitates Life” but not so sure it works on Lanvin’s latest. I guess if I were attending a Piet Modrian exhibit at the Met it would be really en vogue to show up with this pricey clutch in hand. Lanvin has so many original designs, one would argue…why does the designer need to use Modrian’s design (unless he has no idea that he did). Maybe this is Lanvin’s idea of color blocking? The more I’m staring at this bag, I’m beginning to think it’s OK but its not in my must-have obsession column. If you’re enthralled then click the green link to indulge.
I personally like the painting more than the clutch although I have much more chance of affording the clutch.
