Entry Description

In keeping with the essence of KOTUR’s small bags with big personalities, we wanted to design a bag with a unique multi-function. In this digital age, a deciding factor for many customers is whether a bag will fit their phone. Our answer to this question was to design a chic, bold and new concept of a phone case that attaches to the exterior of a functional bag. The #getsmartbag has a chic, streamlined design that securely clips in an iPhone 5/5S and redefines the concept of a clutch: elegant style for modern living. The magnetic flip provides the convenience for picture taking from both front and rear camera. The chic brocade-lined compartment holds your essentials (credit cards, cash and lipstick), and the drop in cross body chain is perfect for a hands-free outing and people on the go for day and night. The practicality of never having to fumble in a bag to find your phone to take or make a call, check emails and messages is also unparalleled. This innovative and fresh design speaks to our modern era where women are negotiating fashion and technology in a chic new way. The #getsmartbag is available in snakeskin, embossed croc/stripe and Swarovski crystals, and ranges from USD$395-USD$795. *Patent pending.
