Bottega Veneta Crocodile Box Clutch, $3450 via Matches UK.
I’ve never been the type to swoon, but if ever I needed a fainting couch, now is the time.
The affinity that Megs and I have for Bottega Veneta exotics is well-documented, and finding this Bottega Veneta Crocodile Knot Box Clutch in a perfect shade of pinky-orangey coral just took me to the next level. I don’t have the social schedule or the financial means to take this little box bag to all of the summertime garden parties that it deserves to see, but maybe someone out there does and could allow me to live vicariously.
I can’t help but think of ice pops when I look at the color of this clutch, and what has more positive warm-weather associations than an ice pop? Nothing, that’s what. And when you combine that with the pristine crocodile (Bottega uses some of the best skins in the business), you have a summer treat that won’t melt in your hands. Buy through Matches UK for $3450.
