Fringe and fashion go together like two peas in a pod, so when Kent Stetson released his Chain Reaction clutch, we couldn’t help but get a little giddy. Much like the high fashion fringe on the runways, Stetson’s handbags feature quality colored leathers juxtaposed with long flowing tassels, only here, hides are replaces with high-quality chains.
Growing up with with two crafty parents (his father was a blacksmith and his mother an equestrian who made her own tack), Stetson studied science at Brown before transitioning into the art world. Known best for his digitally painted handbags, Stetson’s leather goods offer a luxury twist to an otherwise accessible line of purses.
Kent Stetson’s hand-crafted chain mail clutch is a one-of-a-kind item that won’t tie up your bank account, unless your purchase starts off a Chain Reaction.
