Fashion publication applauds luxury handbag as ‘somewhere between an oversize cigarette case and an exquisite work of art’

SAN FRANCISCO, March 20, 2012 – Luxury fashion brand Jill Milan, a provider of designer handbags made in Italy, announced its Art Deco Clutch was named to W magazine’s “Most Wanted” feature in the publication’s April 2012 issue, available on newsstands this week. The monthly feature compiles fashion and lifestyle products nominated by the publication’s editorial staff.

“The W team is exceptionally discerning in the brands and products it names to the monthly ‘Most Wanted’ feature, and for them to recognize our Art Deco Clutch is beyond gratifying,” said Jill Fraser, chief executive officer of Jill Milan. “We are delighted to be among such prestigious company.” Other brands included in the April feature include Cartier, Chanel, Givenchy and Yves Saint Laurent.

“Who needs jewelry when you’re carrying a Jill Milan Art Deco clutch?” reads W magazine’s commentary on the luxury handbag. “Made entirely by hand in Florence by one of Europe’s most prestigious jewelers, it’s somewhere between an oversize cigarette case and an exquisite work of art – and there are currently only 20 of them in the world.” The Art Deco Clutch was nominated by W Assistant Managing Editor Roseann Marulli Rodriguez.

The Art Deco Clutch is made of Italian stainless steel and is available in silver or gold. The interior is fully lined and the logo at the top of the clutch functions as the bag’s closure.

W is a monthly fashion magazine published by Condé Nast Publications. It was created in 1971 and has a reader base of nearly half a million.
