Retro play purse gets an update


Well, I haven’t been this excited since jelly shoes came back into vogue.

An early seventies masterpiece, the play purse is back – and it’s bigger and brighter than ever.

The oversized clutch, modelled on the original play purse of the 70s, comes in a range of six colours inspired by the original designs: cyan blue, dark blue, pale orange, pale pink, red and yellow, all with contrasting beaded patterns.

Stick on a sixties shift, ankle socks and t-bar shoes and you can relive your (or somebody else’s, if you’re under 40) youth.

The pretty Play Purse costs just £25 and you can find out more or order your own right here.
