WOMEN'S CLUTCH - AVA CLUTCH
This project explores the concept of skin as more than merely a necessity, but as an ornamental embellishment. The human skeleton is essentially covered by a series of layers- tissue, muscle, fat, etc., each serving a specific and nuanced purpose. Skin is the outermost layer in this series, and is often subject to various forms of aesthetic and functional embellishments. This clutch behaves similarly, by being both an elegant accessory as well as providing warmth to the user. Additionally, the clutch includes a magnetic locking system, and the layered leather allows one to experience an otherwise two dimensional form in a different, more organic manner.
