If you love New York and are in the market for a long clutch that’s also fun and whimsical, look no further than the new F/W13 Kate Spade Taxi Off Duty Clutch. From its aptly named line called Far From The Tree (which I’m thinking is a reference to the Big Apple, you know, otherwise known as NYC), the almost 32 cm across by about 7.5 cm high clutch is long, long enough to double-up as an assault weapon if you’re ever feeling threatened.
Made of woven nylon with light gold-plated hardware, the clutch comes complete with printed apples and topped with what must be one of New York’s most recognisable icons, the yellow taxi cab. Simply flip the cab over and the clutch opens to reveal a rather roomy interior, complete with at least 3 slots for essentials like identification and credit cards. It also comes with a long sling, a handy bonus to have, in my opinion.
Priced at around SGD580 in Singapore, check it out at Kate Spade ION Orchard, an oasis of calm and much better than the madhouse you’ll encounter at their other boutique within Takashimaya Department Store, which on hindsight is pretty much how one would describe NYC on any given day.
