Last week, we clued you in to the insanely well-edited selection of clutches and evening bags that Moda Operandi has squirreled away in its “boutique” section. Today, we’ve got one brand of handheld bags in particular that the site has just started carrying and that you’ll want to know: Serpui Marie. If you’ve got a garden party or outdoor wedding to attend this spring or summer, the brand can solve any clutch conundrums you might encounter without breaking the bank. (Yes, Moda Operandi occasionally stocks some reasonably priced pieces alongside its premium designer wares.)
Serpui Marie originally hails from Brazil, and the country’s sunny Latin culture is evident in the design of the brand’s bags. Naturally, that makes them perfect for warm-weather events, but the prices, which start around $200, mean that there’s likely a cute little clutch to fit almost anyone’s budget. Without a doubt, the line’s standouts are the pieces inlaid with mother of pearl mosaics; the subtle sheen and color variation of the nacre is like carrying the ocean itself in a little bag. Check out our favorites below or shop the line via Moda Operandi or ShopBop.
