Little Man, Big Impact

When your outfit needs a boost, reach for a clutch with flair. Perfect for sunny days, warm weather events and that vacation you’re planning, we’re featuring these zippy fabric clutches from Christine Guanipa. There’s just enough room for your cell phone, keys, lipstick and some change. Besides being beautifully proportioned, Christine’s handbags are something to treasure. Each limited-production bag is designed and made by hand in her Massachusetts studio. Her experience as a printmaker shines through in her smart fabric and trim choices. Christine draws inspiration from vintage bags from the 1950s, which she reinterprets with fresh details and modern printed fabrics. The collection is named Little Man after a cartoon character Christine’s husband drew while they were in art school together.“These are not run-of-the-mill purses, by any means,” says Holly Crawford, a Daily Grommet reader who told us about Christine’s handbags. For a Little Man, these clutches definitely make a big impression.
