My New Lulu Guinness Cassis Powder Coated Lips Clutch

I’ve been a fan of Lulu Guinness for many years now. I used to attend her press days in London a few years ago and they were amazing! I stopped going to press days a couple of years ago as they were extremely stressful and didn’t benefit me in any way with what I do now, but I always remember the Lulu Guinness ones. One reason would be because she always placed her famous Lips Clutches together, on a display (see here and here) and it was so visually pretty, it made me want one.

Years have gone by with my admiring Lulu’s Lips Clutches, but I’ve never gotten around to purchasing one, until now. I had my reasons and a few were that I didn’t want one with embellishment, and I didn’t want one with the shiny perspex, plus I didn’t have much use for clutches back then as I tend to favour cross-body bags. Things changed however when I saw this gorgeous Lulu Guinness Cassis Powder Coated Lips Clutch in the sale on her website! With over 40% off, I felt like now was the right time, especially as I had just gotten some money for Christmas to spend on something nice – I decided this was it.

As you can tell by the name, this Lips Clutch is Powder Coated. This makes me so happy as like I said, I didn’t want the shiny perspex as I wanted one that was a little more muted and this one is matte all over. There’s three different colour variations in the Powder Coated and that’s Red, Black, and Cassis, and since the colour I loved the most was the one in the sale, I jumped at the chance to order it. I got it just after Christmas and I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share it with you and to fit it in my schedule. So here it is, isn’t it stunning?

The Lips Clutches are Lulu’s iconic signature bag and have been a staple in her collection for years (also seen on celebs). She brings out different styles each season, but they are a classic. The height is 12cm, the width is 23cm, and the depth is about 6cm, so you can see it’s a decent size to fit your iPhone, cards, some make-up essentials etc and carry them around with you in style. The best part though as it’s perspex is that it’s only about 0.30kg in weight, so it’s not heavy at all. There’s nothing worse than getting a new clutch and it’s heavy before you even put anything in it. This one features a black grosgrain lining with an interior wall pocket, right next to the Lulu Guinness branding patch. It fastens really securely with a concealed magnet clasp inside, so you only have to attempt to push the two sides shut and they snap quickly and lock as the magnet is extremely strong. I think this is great as you don’t worry about it popping open and your stuff falling out.

The colour is a beautiful burgundy with magenta undertones to it, so it’s a mixture of a deep red, purple, and pink, making it a shade that I haven’t really ever seen before, but when I opened the box my jaw dropped. It’s literally that pretty. It’s one of those colours that almost looks like it would be a juicy, edible fruit. The outside of the clutch features a Lulu Guinness logo embossed on the back, and the grooves of the lips on the front, making it look realistic and fun. You do need to be careful with perspex though as if you drop it or knock it on a hard surface, you could break it, so I’ve been taking great care of it so far and can’t wait to share with you outfit posts with my new Lips Clutch. I do have a couple of modelled photos below for you as well, but what do you think of my new Lulu Guinness Cassis Powder Coated Lips Clutch? I’m so excited to finally own one!

Modelling The Lulu Guinness Lips Clutch

I know the colour looks slightly different below, but that’s because the Lips Clutch is against black instead of white like the above photos, so it alters how the camera see’s the colour. It’s a mix between the two colours, it’s very much like a deep purple with burgundy undertones to it, and shades of pink. I would say (if you use a MacBook Pro) that the photos on the Lulu Guinness website are quite accurate. I showed three different ways to hold it, to share with you its size and proportion, plus the last photo shows how easy this Lips Clutch is to hold as your thumb sits perfectly in the groove.

    I love Lulu’s bag, including those black perspex ones, her bags have so much character and would double up for great interior design pieces. I’m majorly into bags, some I think are such great works of art. Yours is super coote, I’m wayyy to clumsy to have a clutch, I’d mos def leave it behind somewhere. Anyhoo, enjoy it and have a good week ahead ( :

    • January 24, 2017 / 8:26 pm

      Thank you! I’m so glad you like it ( :

      I know what you mean about interior decorations too, they would be so pretty!

    • January 24, 2017 / 8:26 pm

      You should get one!

    Oh dang, now you make me want this too. I only own one clutch because I find it to be inconvenient to carry and I’m paranoid about losing it but this is so pretty.
