I may very well have already dubbed another bag as my favorite clutch of the summer, but with the advent of new information (and new bags!), I would like to take that back, at least tentatively. And the clutch that has me doubting my previous decision is the Mad Imports Ariel Ombre Woven Clutch. The economically priced and environmentally friendly clutch of woven raffia features a subtle pattern of light straw woven into the chocolate brown body, creating the ombre effect that gives the clutch its name. The end result is incredibly chic and also very understated; this bag doesn’t scream about its appearance, it merely whispers to those paying attention.
I can only imagine how many friends (and probably strangers) would ask me about this clutch if I was to carry it on a night out during warm weather. Anyone who’s looking for something understated but still enormously stylish would do well to order this bag right away – at that price point, I don’t think they’ll have them in stock for long.
