If you saw someone carrying one of these you may, at first glance, think that they are just carrying a folded up magazine. But, they aren't! They are actually carrying a very stylish fashion magazine cover purse!
Vintage magazine clutches were originally produced in the 1960's and 1970's.
Lately the idea of using magazine covers for purses has re-emerged. You can find crafty guys and gals all over the country re-working this old idea.
I found some really cool new "Subway Clutches" over at Purse Heaven. They have graphics from the London Underground, the London Tube map and the Brit Mod bullseye on them.
The 1970's Italian "Claudia" magazine featured above can be found over at Vintage in Style.
