When Amanda covered the Derek Lam Python Elsa Clutch last summer, she was not keen on the bag. And you all shared your opinions, mostly saying that you disagreed and loved the bag. I was not moved either way. But now I am and I have to share it with you all.

It was as if the other photo made the bag look bland and lackluster. Or maybe it was even the color of the bag. But once this bright turquoise Derek Lam Elsa Leather Clutch caught my eye, I felt overcome to share it with you.


Firstly I will admit my love of the color turquoise. It is a genius color, not quite green and not quite blue, but a stunning eye-catching compilation. While I was unsure about the design of this clutch before, I now love it. Why? Because it is different. Many clutches have expectable designs, with little difference setting them apart from the next.

But this design is distinctive and brings us asymmetrical touches and additional design elements. The zipper compartment flap is asymmetric and there is a side tassel. With all the extra looks, we find that each is usable and not just for show. Pockets are ample in this clutch, which is always a plus. And dimensions are spacious yet not overwhelming, 7″W X 11″H X 2″D. A couple months ago I would have passed this clutch by, but not this time. Buy through Saks for $790.

    I’m loving the Derek Lam clutch. Very conivented looks like it has lots of space. Great color perfect for spring.

    I like this clutch more than I used to. I think it’s better in regular leather, the python texture was too much on top of everything else this bag has going on. Plus the color is perfect.

      That is what I think too. I think the python was just too much for an already busy clutch, but simple leather in a gorgeous color is perfect

    definitely looks better in regular leather.

    I adore the clutch the leather is so much better than the python. It is a small clutch with wonderful accents so the stunning color and simple leather makes this years attempt so much better.

    I love the design of that clutch but I wouldn’t wear the color…I’d totally swoon for a black one though.
