PURSE SIZE 2 - NEW!
One of the Latest pieces of Jo Cope conceptual design in the form of a minimalist flat cut leather purse in size 2.
This is a unisex large clutch purse which bucks the trend of the standardised bags or wallets, offering a very cool alternative in the form of an over scaled purse, which can be used on its own or in conjunction with a larger bag to carry all your essentials.
It draws on the artistic nature of Cope’s fashion practise, with each piece an artistic composition of colour and material.
Pieces are limited editions in colour placement and leather type and each is completely unique in some way, the colour on the back is also different to the front and is part of the overall visual aesthetic.
Leather types include: foiled gold, punctured, patent and coated.
There are two functional compartments; front small purse size 1 and larger main purse area size 2.
Size 1 area fits credit cards and all other cards and change etc.
larger area 2 can fit most things such as phones, make up, receipts, money, passports.
Size: 9″ x 8″
