Man Hand Candy from Linnie Woods!

men clutch bag linnie woods emmanuel ray

Isn’t this bag gorgeous? Google “clutch bags for men” and you will see the usual black and brown bags (so boring!). 

So when fashionista Linnie Woods gave me this fabulous bag, I was overjoyed! This is what clutch bags for men should look like. Colourful, flamboyant and eye-catching, while being practical and useful.

Funnily enough, every time I carry this bag, something good happens. So maybe it’s got great positive energy too. Green, after all, is one of the most prominent colours of Daddy Nature (I say “Daddy Nature” as I am convinced that nature is a Man!) signifying lushness, abundance and plentifulness. And what about the splattering of Green on the Peacock; the Fashionisto of the Animal Kingdom?! He is the most flamboyant display of male beauty. 

So many people have said “wow, fabulous bag!”, “that’s a lovely bag”, “where did you it from?” and so on. A bright coloured bag like this would be a nice finishing touch for a white linen suit, don’t you think? Just make sure your belt and shoes are a soft beige. This kind of bag can actually clash with prominent colours, but I guess it’s all in the mixing, matching and your personal style.

Linnie Woods shows her hand picked collection of clothing and accessories at various events, shows and markets. She shows in London quite often, so Click Here and add her on Facebook to get in touch and find out where you can see and buy her fabulous pieces from. She has only just launched her collection, so the website will go live soon!

Did you know?

Clutch bags for men (often with straps attached to them) were apparently popular during the late 70s and early 80s.

The Man clutch (or Mlutch / Murse , as it is sometimes stupidly referred to! – Do we really need to put the letter “M” on things relating to men’s fashion? Whoever started that trend deserves to be bitch-slapped!) grabbed everyone’s attention when male models at the Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2010 show sported them on the catwalk. 

I carried the Global Chic oversized envelope clutch by IMAN during London Fashion Week 2009. Several photo ops! But alas, this is the only photo I can find of it today, and it’s great that I’m standing next to Boris Johnson, (Mayor of London with a fabulous head of moppy hair!) I’ll tag him in this post so I can piggy back on his Google hits! 🙂 

The peacock (male) is the one with that fabulous tail. Well, they’re actually feathers. The peafowls (females) weren’t blessed with this glamourous trait. Maybe God was in a bad mood when he created them. Or perhaps he just forgot! Isn’t it interesting that in the animal kingdom, it is the males that look most flamboyant?

Peacock Green is literally the same as Emerald Green. Green rays are supposed to generate life-giving energy and the colour is also calming and soothing while being vibrant and happy. What a wonderful combination. I think this bag is a light emerald green. Top points for anyone who comes up with a name to suit the exact shade of greenthis bag has been created in.

Lord Murugan in Hindu mythology is often pictured with a Peacock. Perhaps that’s why Peacocks enjoy such attention and respect. And so should all Fashionistos and Stylish Men!

Linnie Woods is a charming mature lady with bright sparkling eyes, an infectious laugh and is full of feminine charm. She’s a cougar!
