CAT Clutch, This Season’s Conversation Starter

Muchaneta Kapfunde | @FashNerdEditor

Fabulously out there, the CAT clutch is a funky creation by Al and Erin Linke. Fashionably fun, the stand out clutch is a definite a conversation starter that could stylishly give CuteCircuit a run for their money.

Recently launched on Kickstarter, CAT, Creative Arts & Technology, is wearable art for the fashion forward disco divas. Designed by hand from acrylic, it embraces the iconic style of the 50’s with the colorfulness of the 80s. We love how you can express your style with the simple touch of the CAT Clutch Bluetooth enabled app. The mobile app comes pre-loaded with over 20 pixel art animations commissioned from leading pixel artists. To customize your bag, tap the art you like and seconds later it’s lit up on your bag. If you want to display text instead of animation, you can use the CAT Scrawl app to create a scrolling banner.


The CAT clutch brags an LED front display, with pixel art inspired by video game graphics of the 1980s. When you explore the inside of the CAT Clutch, you will see a large mirror that spans the width of the interior and an alcove that is the perfect place to hold your lipstick, cash and mobile. Should your phone battery run low, there is a USB port inside the clutch which you can use to charge it on the go. The only downfall is that when you are charging your mobile, your LED display will switch off automatically.


With about 10 – 12 hours of continuous use battery life, you can re-charge your clutch with a USB charger should it run low. The CAT clutch is available for pre-order in gold glitter and pearl white for $299 USD/ £197 GPB. Should you decide to pledge your support, you will receive one clutch,  a strap, a CAT logo zippered pouch, and a CAT logo drawstring bag. Delivery for pre-orders made during the campaign will be October 2016. After the Kickstarter campaign ends, the price will rise to £230 GPB, with expected delivery around November 2016.


Want it? We recommend that you take advantage of the discounted pre-order price and be part of the CAT campaign. Fund the clutch HERE.
