Craftsmanship in the spotlight

With New York Fashion week drawing to a close, we often become so consumed by the street-style fashion-frenzied buzz, that we forget the craftsmanship and authenticity that each designer brought to the runway.


Here at Clutch Made we believe that craftsmanship should be in the foreground of any good manufacturer or fashion house, that's why the Marc Jacobs September show got us really excited.


This year the Marc Jacobs atelier brought all kinds of textures to life, with every piece hand-crafted and paired with luxury leather accessories. It was difficult not to notice the details and specificity of his collection.


Marc Jacobs is the epitome of American made. Born and raised in the USA he crafts his collections with the American 'cool-girl' style and expertise of traditional making. Paying homage to this American way of making, his eye for quality and detail sets him apart from other ateliers, especially at this years September fashion week.



Texture upon texture, the new trend of making seems to be that of incorporating authenticity with handcrafted expertise. We love the combination of leather bucket bags and box-shaped clutches.


Perhaps our highlight of the whole week was how the spotlight is on designers and manufacturers to produce beautiful, luxury items, crafted the traditional way. That is a value and way of making that Clutch Made will always enforce and pursue.
