Some people wear fake Louis Vuitton, others wear fake...grass. An astroturf clutch is the latest creation from Philly artist/handbag designer Conrad Booker. Inspired by the British theme of this year's Philadelphia Flower Show, the handmade clutch features a velvet Union Jack flag on the front and a contrast lining, the designer's signature.
The clutches are part of a super limited-edition run—only four were made—and they're exclusive to the Fabric Row footwear boutique Bus Stop. "We love throwing ideas around with our dear friend CB and seeing what his creative mind comes up with!" says Bus Stop's Aubrie Costello. The cost to make your friends green with envy? $135.
