Clutches reviewed by designer Devi Kroell *pics*

    Jewelry You Can Put Your Cellphone In

    Clutch-style evening purses have made a comeback recently, with major retailers reporting brisk sales of these pieces starting in the fall. Since the trend is expected to continue through spring, stores have stocked up on clutches in a variety of exotic skins, colors and new, large sizes. Handbag and shoe designer Devi Kroell, whose pieces are sold in high-end retailers such as Barneys New York and in her store in East Hampton, N.Y., suggests thinking of the clutch as "another piece of jewelry" that completes the evening ensemble. She sticks to pieces that are just big enough for the basics, like money and a cellphone. We went shopping with Ms. Kroell at Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan.
