We introduced you to the Katherine Kwei line a while back, and I think her bags are so interesting that they’re worth revisiting in a more detailed way. Right now, I’m going to focus on the Donna Clutch for no other reason than because it’s my favorite, and I’m the one that’s in the pleasant position of getting to decide what we talk about right now.
With some brands, their line has a shtick, and either you like it or you don’t. Kwei’s shtick is fringe, as we saw previously, and luckily I love it. My favorite part of the way that she does fringe is that it’s all gathered and attached at the bottom. You get the advantage of the texture and a bit of movement, but not the full-on swingy, messy milieu that loose fringe would create. It also creates visual interest in absence of a pattern, exterior pockets, or other types of decoration, making it easier to match while still being a bag that’s fundamentally interesting to look at. Dark silver is one of my favorite neutrals; I can think of dozens of things in my closet with which this would go beautifully. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $635.
