Yesterday’s Chicago Sun-Times story about smart traveling companions featured the Clipa purse hanger. Calling The Crystal Clipa Collection “a line of highly polished handbag clips flaunting Swarovski crystals,” the article noted that they “double as bling-laden bracelets.” The paper’s online version included a photo of the hematite and light sapphire crystal “Rachel” in the photo gallery.
Upon learning that Queen Elizabeth II may be in need of a purse hanger, Clipa Germany sent a Clipa instant handbag hanger to Buckingham Palace. Last Friday, a letter from Her Majesty’s Lady-in-Waiting was delivered with thanks for enclosing “the present of a handbag hook for Her Majesty”. Kate Middleton’s is on the way.
