DESIGNER: Wendy Stevens
In 1983, having recently moved to New York, designer Wendy Stevens noticed a need for small, durable bags to carry just the essentials. Commuting around the city, Stevens found material inspiration in the sheet metal used in subway cars, telephone booths and elevators. The metal handbag idea was born. Stevens continues to make each piece by hand with the help of a small staff.

Here, Stevens was inspired by the ancient craft of lace, which she has transformed through the use of contemporary materials and design. The Lace Clutch is made of etched stainless steel with leather gussets and a magnetic closure. The clutch is spacious enough to hold a cell phone, keys, reading glasses, credit cards and some cosmetics.
