Bottega Veneta Crocodile Box Clutch, $3450 via Matches UK.

I’ve never been the type to swoon, but if ever I needed a fainting couch, now is the time.

The affinity that Megs and I have for Bottega Veneta exotics is well-documented, and finding this Bottega Veneta Crocodile Knot Box Clutch in a perfect shade of pinky-orangey coral just took me to the next level. I don’t have the social schedule or the financial means to take this little box bag to all of the summertime garden parties that it deserves to see, but maybe someone out there does and could allow me to live vicariously.

I can’t help but think of ice pops when I look at the color of this clutch, and what has more positive warm-weather associations than an ice pop? Nothing, that’s what. And when you combine that with the pristine crocodile (Bottega uses some of the best skins in the business), you have a summer treat that won’t melt in your hands. Buy through Matches UK for $3450.

    I agree that it won’t fit into my collections, but it is a stunner! It’s nice to have beautiful things to dream about!

    I love this clutch! that being said I lust for a $22kbottega croc tote. I recently purchased two Bottega Cabats to help satiate my croc desire. For 11k, I hope it works!

    Honestly, I don’t know what the big deal is. It’s ok, but in the end it’s just a tiny box with a simple knot on top that any kid could tie. But the skin is nice.

    Gorgeous! Love the color of course, and the crocodile skin. The knot.. I haven’t decided if I like that or not.

    As nice as this BV is, I’d go Judith Leiber for swank night bags.
