When I happened upon the Marc by Marc Jacobs Bianca Envelope Clutch at a store this weekend, I was taken aback at home much I liked it. Many of the bags from this collection aren’t exactly my cup of tea, and I had written this off as just another simple clutch that I wouldn’t be buying.
And this clutch is simple, but in person, that works out to its advantage. It’s big enough to be carried during the day but not so laughably oversized that it couldn’t be taken out at night, and the compartment inside is easily big enough for all of your essentials.
The best of MbMJ’s Bianca bags have a 70s sensibility to them that is very attractive, and the chevron shape and oversized gold hardware of this clutch don’t have any other aesthetic details against which to compete. In this instance, that simplicity works in the design’s favor, making this the type of clutch that you’ll be able to use for years to come if you choose your color wisely. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $298.
