Double clutch #40

Sam Clyma made this bag under his label, MRK, alongside his project for the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) degree at the Elam School of Fine Arts. "When considering the bag, I was thinking of the physical nature of clutches as objects. I wanted to 'amp up' the physical experience of the object by 'doubling it', yet leaving the two elements in a state of 'floating' against each other."
