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.

    I love this little neutral bags! The clean lines and simple hardware are just so nice…..taupe isn’t my favourite colour, but I could get over that for this bag!

    I like it! It’s not over the top. It’s sophisticated and safe & sometimes, that’s what’s required!

    Very cute! The taupe color makes it appropriate for spring/summer without being as high maintenance as pure white.

    I don’t care for that color, but this is a nice basic clutch.

    I am going to show my age and say yes, it reminds me of some of the great clutch bags I carried in the 70’s. I really like this one and I think all the colors it comes in are very wearable. I just might have to get one and put on some Gloria Gaynor or Bee Gees disco music! ;)

    I just don’t like the clasp. I found it to be kind of heavy, and I really like hardware on a bag.

    Lovely. Clean, simple and unfussy. I like this color among the three on the site, but I kind of wish it came in bright, candy-inspired hues.

    Anyway, I don’t know how Marc manages to always get it right. Perfect.
