Amanda Pearl Hepburn Roll Clutch — Perfect for Holly Golightly, Sabrina Fairchild, and Princess Ann
Fifty years have elapsed since Audrey Hepburn played the now-iconic Holly Golightly character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and yet the film remains relevant in both contemporary cinematic and fashion discourse, with the sleeveless black Givenchy sheath dress Hepburn donned during the film’s opening sequence topping style experts’ lists of most memorable screen ensembles. Hepburn’s look in the film poster — where she’s captured seated at a restaurant table in this classic LBD dress, her neck adorned by a multi-strand pearl necklace, her arms covered in opera-length black gloves, her elbows propped on the table, a long cigarette holder tucked between the fingers of her left hand and her right hand cupping her face — continues to convey both a Parisian-inspired elegance and a sharp New York City sensibility. Classic yet romantic dresses in sleek black become synonymous with Hepburn — not just thanks to her Holly Golightly wardrobe but also due to her ensembles in Cinderella-style films like 1954′s Sabrina, in which she donned a Givenchy-designed boat-neck cocktail dress with a fitted, almost corse-tlike bodice; bow details along the thin spaghetti-like straps; and a voluminous skirt that fell below the knee.
When you look at the Amanda Pearl Hepburn Roll clutch ($1495 at AmandaPearl.com), then, you’ll likely envision the dresses Hepburn immortalized on screen and imagine how well the handbag would have complemented these frocks. Whether playing Holly Golightly, Sabrina Fairchild, or Roman Holiday‘s Princess Ann, Hepburn would have jumped at the opportunity to add some instant glamour to her characters’ wardrobes with this cylindrical-shaped clutch.
Covered in Black Duchess satin, the Amanda Pearl Hepburn Roll Clutch features a top clasp with a domed pearl-like cabochon stone at the center of grooved gold-plated sphere, and the hinges along the sides allow the purse to open at the center, revealing the Moiré lining along the interior. Measuring 8 3/4″ in length, 2 3/4″ in height, and 2 3/4″ in width, the Amanda Pearl Roll Clutch fits comfortably inside the palm of the hand, and it comes with a gold-plated touch-up mirror for clandestine makeup fixes. The jet black Swarovski crystals covering the gold-trimmed sides of the roll-shaped clutch, meanwhile, add the perfect dose of glamour for the woman who dreams of having breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Tiffany’s.
