Rachel Bilson’s Sunglass Hut Purse: The Marni Top Handle Mini Handbag

May 9 2010 • by Roselle

Guess who the new Sunglass Hut ambassador is? Yup, it’s Rachel Bilson. The young actress was spotted arriving in New York last April 28, as she was scheduled to attend the launch of Sunglass Hut’s flagship store to be held the following day (April29).

On both days, Rachel was spotted carrying a tiny white frame top handle that turned out to be a Marni creation. I guess she decided to use it in place of the usual clutch; which then brings me to the reason why I’m writing this article.

A tiny purse like Rachel’s Marni is a good alternative to the clutch. It can actually be considered as an oversized clutch.

I checked the Marni website to do more research on the bag but I couldn’t find the exact same bag there. I did find something similar, the Zip Bag.  Rachel’s bag most likely comes from a previous collection.

Marni Zip Bag (small), US$1,575

If you like the Marni bag, you can buy it from the Marni website for US$1575. Now if you don’t want to spend that much on a small bag, then go for these oversized frame clutches with handles instead:

Stewart Weitzman Metalist, US$650

CC Skye Lulu Day, US$599

These two are not cheap, but both are far more affordable than the Marni!
