The queen of quirky strikes again. This time, Kate Spade introduces two fire starter-inspired bags that are sure to set sparks flying. The novelty creations incorporate whimsical and unexpected elements that stay true to the New York brand’s playful aesthetic. And while these matchbox styles aren’t good for lighting any candles, they are the perfect match to ignite any look.
Firstly, there’s the Perfect Match Matchbox Clutch (SGD920), which serves as the perfect companion for a fun night out. A playful take on the simple matchbox, this 18.5 cm by 11.5 cm resin creation is sure to turn heads. It features shimmering crystal embellishments and gilded matchstick details.
Good looks aside, it is a functional clutch with interior card slots and sufficient room for your phone and lipstick. Its removable gold-tone chain strap also lends hands-free convenience to this boxy style that you can otherwise hold in hand as a clutch.
Equally boasting just the right amount of whimsy is the smaller Perfect Match Micro Matchbox Crossbody (SGD500). Fashioned in smooth leather, this compact darling comes in at just 10 cm by 9.5 cm. In other words, just the right size for stashing some cards, a lipstick, keys and even your AirPods.
While its matchbox details aren’t immediately apparent, open its top magnetic snap closure to find a neat row of matchstick motifs within. It also features a cute matchstick charm complete with flame-shape crystals to keep things interesting. Wear it as a statement crossbody or remove the optional strap to transform it into a mini clutch.
