The first time I heard the word clutch referred to a bag I was really surprised since at that time to me clutch was only one the pedals in the car without the automatic shift not a small bag that it is usually hold in your hands.
In the past a clutch was usually worn only during important and elegant events but nowadays a clutch can be also worn during the day.

The evening clutches are usually made with precious materials and embellished with sequins, pearls, crystals, metallic leather Also the shapes can be the most various ones.
I look curiously at celebrities when they take part to red carpet events because their clutches look like magic boxes because what they hold in their hands sometimes does not even look like a bag.
These are my favorite evening clutches.
