It’s exactly 2 weeks to Christmas, and another 7 days after for New Year’s. If you’re not counting down the days, you can trust me, I most certainly am. Now, aside from all the gift giving and receiving in the day, celebrations and parties at night are the next thing that most of you ladies will be attending in full force. Choosing a bag to go along with your outfit will often result in the search options being narrowed down to the small, cute, and statement-making pieces that don’t see much light of day.
Now, if you don’t exactly have one that fits the above criteria, here’s the good news. I’ve narrowed down 4 clutches from NET-A-PORTER that you can carry to your upcoming dinner party or celebratory feast. These clutches are great because for one, they come in a small enough size which means they are handy. Secondly, they are all statement pieces that range from the iconic to the glitzy glam. And most importantly, a lady can never have too many clutches in her lifetime, and that’s that.
First up, there’s this Jimmy Choo number that will make Kira Kira go crazy. The Ellipse Glittered Satin Clutch (USD932) comes in pretty wide at 22 cm with an option of adding the additional chain strap to keep yourself hands-free for the night. While the blush pink satin is covered with glitter on the outside, the leather-lined interior holds sufficient space for a cardholder, an iPhone and a lipstick, or two.
Then there’s the Jean Embossed Acrylic Box Clutch (USD1125) from Edie Parker. As the name clearly points out, the box clutch is made of full acrylic, so no worries on getting food stains/liquid spills all over your pretty little thing. Measuring some 17 cm wide and 9 cm high, the clutch opens to a mirrored interior that’s perfect for convenient touch-ups on the go.
Moving on there’s the showstopper of the lot, Alexander McQueen’s Knuckle Embellished Velvet Clutch (USD4181) which is also the priciest of the lot. Truly one of a kind thanks to the intricate embellishments of crystals and beads, it is paired with the iconic Swavroski-embellished knuckleduster clasp where your fingers slide in perfectly. Looking for something that’s bold and beautiful all at once? This is definitely it.
Last but not least, there’s the icon. More specifically, Bottega Veneta’s Knot Watersnake-trimmed Intrecciato Satin Clutch (USD1710). The answer for the lady who’s looking for something considered a ‘forever bag’ in my books, this is the one that will outlive ever-changing seasonal trends. Not only does the satin finish make it soft to the touch, it’s also a less pricey version of an all-leather Knot clutch but still recognisable thanks to BV’s signature intrecciato detailing.
