Once again, Rebecca Minkoff takes handbags to another level, but this time, it involves audio (I guess Jawbone speakers aren’t fashionable enough for all the stylish chicks out there).  Like all of Minkoff’s bags, there’s no denying this clutch looks great, especially when accessorized with so much arm candy!?

In collaboration with Stellé Audio Couture, the six clutches-turned-portable speakers

(with chrome like speakers no less) made their first appearance at Minkoff’s SS/13 show, as seen below (loving that killer polish in bright light blue!).  Basically, you have a gorgeous clutch, that when opened, the speakers are exposed, making the clutch itself it’s stand. But it really is no surprise, as Minkoff is usually ahead of the ‘curve’ and knows it’s not only guys that are into tech gadgets anymore – we totally dig them too but when packaged so beautifully + functional at that, you know the designer has another hit on her hands.

‘Their vision for building beautiful, premium consumer electronics aimed at fashionable females is so innovative. It’s the perfect collaboration for me to expand my label into electronics without sacrificing my design aesthetic.’

Using blue tooth technology, these Stellé Audio Clutches are finally for sale at Ron Robinson at Fred Segal, retailing for $399 along with a non-Minkoff Stelle clutch for $299 + pillar-style speakers for $349.  So go ahead and buy yourself one – Valentine’s Day or not, who really needs a reason to pamper themselves like this!?
