Handbag designer Lulu Guinness has revealed that next season's handbags are due to get smaller, following Kate Middleton's love of the tiny clutch bag.
Talking to the Telegraph, Lulu revealed that though she loves a bigger bag, her forthcoming designs are all far more petite, most probably due to the Kate Effect.
"If she's done anything for the handbag, it's the fact that she wears small clutch bags," the designer said.
"Personally, I am making my clutch bags smaller next season, so they're more delicate and ladylike, and that's to do with her, I think."
Talking about the eternal clutch bag dilema however, Lulu added, "[The Duchess is] very elegant, but she's also got people carrying the other things she needs, and a big car waiting for her."
Hmm, very true Lulu, very true. What do you think?
Could you fit all your daily items into a clutch like Kate Middleton?
