When it comes to clutches, I love them most when they come in modern shapes and quality materials. The shape of the Berlingot Céline Bag fits my mostly minimal aesthetic, so I thought it would be a perfect DIY for today. Using leather from my favorite leather source, the Leather Hide Store, I chose a sturdy optic white leather. I thought white would work best against my black wardrobe and leather is a more seasonless material than the felted wool of the original bags.
