I’m always so thrilled when a young designer whose clothes I love finally dips his or her toe into the accessories waters. Because of the profitability of bags, shoes and small leather goods, adding those lines to a brand often helps smaller designers grow their businesses and expand their capabilities, which is great for fashion lovers on two fronts. Not only does the influx of cash nurture young talent, but it gives us great new bags like these Mary Katrantzou Printed Leather Pouches.
If you’re not yet familiar with Katrantzou, she’s a London-based Greek designer known for her inventive textiles and highly conceptual collections. Her cocktail dresses will run you well into the four figures, but if you want to add just a bit of print to an ensemble, these leather clutches are a beautiful option. With their oversized, simple shape and bright patterns, they’re the stuff street style dreams are made of.
