I don't say this around here enough: I love Kotur clutches, which are designed by native New Yorker Fiona Kotur. The brand is small and independent, but the designs are the type of bold, self-assured look that you'd expect to see from a much bigger (not to mention much more expensive) brand. Kotur makes larger bags that stretch into the thousands of dollars, but its clutches are really where the company's aesthetic shines, and all of the pieces on the Moda Operandi Resort 2013 pre-sale retail for $650 or less.
On the higher end of that price spectrum, you'll find solid brass minaudieres embellished with snakeskin, sequins or glitter, plus larger clutches made out of striated inlaid perspex. For $295, there are a couple of embossed lizard options, and in between those two price levels there are all kinds of goodies to covet. Check out the collection after the jump, or if you've already seen enough, shop the pre-sale at Moda Operandi through May 30.
