Diane von Furstenberg Snakeskin Embossed Clutch, $350 via Matches
It may not seem like a revolutionary handbag, but I’ve been waiting for this teal and black version of the Diane von Furstenberg Harri Clutch to make its debut for what seems like 800 years – ever since I saw it on the Fall 2011 runway way back in February. In reality, it’s a matter of months, but in fashion time that’s an utter eternity. Still, something about the simple color combination and clean lines of this clutch gets under my skin, and I’d like it to get into my closet.
This type of texture is the perfect (and perfectly affordable) in-between for someone who wants to experiment with color but who isn’t quite sure if they’re ready to make, say, turquoise a wardrobe staple quite yet. Because the clutch is half black, it’s a little more accessible for someone who tends to stick with dark colors for evening events. If you’re a little more adventurous (or just sick of snakeskin), DvF has two more interesting options in the same shape that I’ve included after the jump. If you prefer the snake texture (as I do), you can get it for $350 via Matches.
