As far back as I can remember, I’ve always recommend the Knot whenever someone with a bigger budget asked me for a recommendation regarding getting a classy evening clutch. And while there are now many similarly shaped clutches in the market from the affordable (DVF) to the outlandish (Alexander McQueen), there’s no denying the allure (and beauty) of this original icon.
Measuring 19 cm by 12 cm, it’s designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, and even though it’s not exactly very large, it holds enough. A couple of cards, a bit of cash, some make-up essentials and you’re pretty much done, especially when you’re socialising at some gala or out on that special date with your significant other.
Available in both full leather and satin versions (along with countless limited edition variations over the years), might I suggest the satin ones for those who want one but don’t wish to spend that much. Priced at GBP990 over at Net-A-Porter, these ones come trimmed with ayers, a fancy word for what’s basically snakeskin. Besides Purple (shown above), you’ll also find two more in Black and Green.
