While caging a purse could be a good idea to deter pickpockets from steeling valuables, the Fleet Ilya SS12 collection features this design for more of an aesthetic purpose. Like a risque harness for bags, these leather cages add an edgy element to otherwise minimalist designs.

The London-based design brand, which was founded by Ilya Fleet and Resha Sharma, is known for its bondage-type pieces. Nevertheless, instead of being solely influenced by such restraining sexual appetites, the bags, visors and corsets are inspired by Russian-born Ilya Fleet's training in saddle making.

The Fleet Ilya SS12 collection is comprised of the Racer Back Visor, Harnessed Clutch, Harnessed Bag and Half Web Corset in a black and cream palette. Stats for Caged Clutch Collections Trending: Older & Mild
