in the clutch

September 4, 2012

Sarasota’s Layla Copeland loves to sew and design clothes. But it wasn’t until she bought a 1940s Japanese silk clutch for $4 at antique store 15 years ago that the FSU grad was inspired to create her own handbags – with a modern twist.

Made generally of cotton, Copeland’s color-happy handbags have a sleek and classic look. The clutch, her personal favorite, is also a hit with buyers.

The surprising roomy purses come in a variety of bold colors and modern prints. Prices range $45 to $120.


If you are in the Sarasota area, find the designer’s purses at Relish Vintage & Artisan Boutique ( on Anna Maria Island, where Copeland grew up.
