metal-box-clutch.jpgOne of the most un-high street items to be found on the high street this season is this intriguing silver-toned metal box clutch at French Connection. Engraved with an intricate pattern and metallic throughout, the bag actually looks more 'vintage' in real life than in this pic (it has an aged, bronzey tint to it) and is bound to attract attention.

Be warned that this item is on the tiny side for a handbag - it's more of a purse on a chain. But it is extremely pretty and the detailing on the clasp is just amazing. Wear this with a monochrome suit or delicately printed dress for maximum impact.
