Throughout two centuries the clutch was regularly announced as outdated, though it regularly came back to be in vogue with a good consistency. Currently a clutch is an exclusive evening accessory which is evident since a woman of our times has to keep in her bag more fine things then ladies in the XIX century, including keys, a mobile, a purse, makeup products and other stuff. Once the clutch was acknowledged as the accessory for an evening wear, the designers rushed to create their own clutches and now the majority of them tell from the delicacy and even luxury so much required to compliment the evening ensembles.

Being traditionally miniature, the clutch, however, may vary in the shape and size. They usually come round, triangle or square. Clutches are mainly made from leather or luxury «evening» fabric like satin and velvet matching the decorative elements. In some particular cases clutches are made from even the metal.
