Can you guys give us some privacy, please? Felix Rey and I are having a moment. I almost always love the sparkly, witty, slightly off-kilter (in a good way) bags that the brand puts out, put I am particularly enamored with the Felix Rey Sequin Bow Clutch.
There’s something about the combination of sequins and fuchsia that just makes say YES, PLEASE. Maybe it’s my latent David Bowie-fandom, or maybe it’s the drag queen inside of me that’s raring to get out. Or maybe, just possibly, it’s the fact that the brand’s designers managed to take loud material and make it not only socially acceptable, but also pretty.
If you’re interested into adding some sparkle to an outfit (any outfit, really), this is perhaps the most perfect option that I’ve come across. It’s a wristlet instead of a frame or box clutch, which allows it to be used casually, in spite of the material, if you so desire (and I do, for the record). At nine inches long, it’s also big enough for daytime essential. It IS made of fuchsia sequins, after all, so its transition to an evening bag is all too easy.
The glimmering material takes center stage, but the added bit of texture that comes from the bow pleating gives the bag an extra bit of that mysterious, indescribable voodoo that makes a bag great. Whatever it is, I’m buying it. Buy through ShopBop for $160.
