With high-end plastic bags taking over runways and street -style snaps worldwide, it’s time for another it bag to steal the status as the quirky, go-to alternative to a traditional handbag. These chic Lunchbox clutch bags by Simon Miller are an Instagram-worthy option – practical, nostalgic and extremely fashionable in equal measures.
US-based Simon Miller initially launched a decade ago as a mens denim label but it wasn’t until 2014 that it branched out into womenswear and accessories. It’s lucky for us that the brand did, because these clutches, inspired by iconic brown paper lunch bags, are currently way up high on our wishlist.
Unlike those paper versions of yore, Simon Miller’s Lunchbox clutches are handcrafted from textured goat leather, which adds that effortlessly distressed look that will only get better with time. The roll-top fastening is secured with a magnetic finish, so rest assured your belongings won’t spill out easily. Metal feet on the bottom add some additional strength to the slouchy bag and the look is completed with a metallic, embossed text logo that lies upon the front.
This simple yet eye-catching accessory comes in varying sizes and colorways, from black and yellow to a vibrant turquoise blue and is perfect for carting around your essentials – and sure, why not pack some snacks in too.
