Because there isn’t exactly an official name for this bag (well, not that I know of, anyway), I’m calling this new season Jil Sander creation the Brief-Clutch, because at first glance, it’s exactly that. Touted as one of its key bags for S/S13, the bag is the bag is also seen in new ads, held gingerly by model Juliane Gruner in the campaign shot by David Sims.
An all-leather creation, the not-very-big bag (it looks to be just slightly over A5) is certainly interesting, essentially looking like a flat clutch with a typical briefcase-style handle tacked onto the side. That, however, is only 87% true, since it’s not a flat clutch but one that comes with a roomy gusseted base, which you can see in this image I’ve posted online on my Facebook fan page.
Available in a variety of colours and priced at SGD1890, you can get this slightly-confused, reconstructed minimalist beauty in Black or Burgundy at the Jil Sander boutique at Hilton Shopping Gallery.
