more like jewel boxes than evening bags, The most glamorous clutches of the season are the ultimate dream ticket items

Granted, these deliciously chic clutch bags won't store more than a credit card, smartphone and lipstick but then isn't that the fun of it? From Louis Vuitton's heavily bejewelled minaudière and Charlotte Olympia's zodiac-themed case to Stella McCartney's precious-looking prism – what could be more intoxicating than dashing out to a dinner party with nothing more than a seriously extravagant clutch (and the babysitter's number on speed dial)?
