hot pink

By James | Published: 17. March 2012

I was buying black leather for a new bag design (can’t wait to show you soon…), but when I saw this incredible pink, I decided it would be perfect for a new Marlene clutch. Maybe it’s the sun coming out for the first time this year, but everyone seems to be into bright colours at the moment. And, wow, is this pink bright!

Yesterday was a great day for making the bag. I had the windows wide open, the sun was shining on my back, there were some summery tunes on the radio and I couldn’t help smiling as I made this hot pink clutch. It’s inspired me to try the clutch design in a few other neon colours. Which is your favourite? Pink? Yellow? Green? Orange? I think I’ll do it in neon yellow next…

Want to be wearing a neon clutch this summer? To order just send an e-mail to mail at jamescastle dot de

    What a gorgeous colour, reminds me of raspberrys! And a neon yellow version would be insane!

    Hej Marlene
    Det er Katrine, Sidsels veninde 🙂 How are you? I would love to see one in yellow and green. The pink is also very cool. What’s the price? Knus Katrine

      Hej Katrine! Very well, thank you. And you? There’ll be some new pictures of the bag in different colours up here soon, so that should make it even harder for you to decide, hahaha. The clutch is 175 Euro. xo

      P.S. Jeg kommer til København en gang i August og hĂĄber vi ses…

    Love the colour!!!!
    Where do you buy the leather? Can’t find real leather in stores….
    And what kind of sewing machine do you use for leather?

    Nooo this reminds me of the endless summer days I spent in a beautifully sunlit loft in Berlin. And roaming the streets, and long nights and waking up in the afternoon. And all the stunning clothing and lovely people…I miss it!

    Ich hätte sehr gerne eine Pinke oder Neongelbe Clutch von Ihnen, bräuchte sie aber bis spätestens 10.5.2012. Wäre das möglich? Und stimmt der Preis von Euro 180,–, so wie ich es in der Vogue gelesen habe?
    Mfg Brigitte Kosch-Albert
