Mark Cross Scottie Wristlet, $1695 via Barneys
I have recently pondered the absence of a versatile clutch in my handbag wardrobe, so your article was so timely for me! I love the Jason Wu (especially wristlet option) and the Givenchy Obsedia. Some of the clutches out there these days are just too large to be comfortably held. All said, I think my clutch investment is going to have to be the Bottega Veneta woven faille large knot clutch in black. I know it may not hold as much as some of the others, but it is so well made and beautiful and I love the way it feels when you hold it. Plus, it is so classy it can be dressed up or down! I still wouldn’t mind the Obsdia as well, but in all black!
I don’t think you can go wrong with the Bottega Veneta. Such a classic.
The Bottega is a great choice, gpc. We’re very much Bottega lovers around these parts.
I love the Fendi, Reed Krakoff, and Alexander McQueen clutches for the fall. I have to get my hands on at least one…now to decide which one.
What’s wrong with my browser? The arrow buttons don’t show up anymore, so I can only see the first clutch.
I believe it should be fixed now! Apologies for the troubles.
“carrying something handheld instead of a shoulder bag not only makes you look elegant and a bit carefree, but I find that it also makes me feel instantly more stylish”
Same here! I don’t have any daytime clutches (yet, lol) but when I carry a wristlet I instantly feel more elegant.
My favorite is the Lanvin…
Jason Wu and Alexander McQueen are making me rethink my hate of clutches.
i love the Reed krakoff…i love everything they make
me too ..they craft really well with subtle colours
oh that Mcqueen….beauty….
I love the yellow Mark Cross….what a great color!!!
