Do you like Rick Owens? Do you have the budget to buy Rick Owens? If you answered yes and no, respectively, to each of those questions, I’d like to introduce you to the Ted Baker Evening Hard Case Box Clutch.
Owens’ hard-edged industrialist chic is beloved by all sorts of fashion lovers who used to be goths and punks in high school, but it doesn’t come cheap. Thankfully, this little clutch does, but it doesn’t sacrifice anything in the way of attitude in order to cut its price tag.
Patterned evening bags tend to either skew very retro or very feminine, and if neither of those things are your look, then this clutch might be right up your alley. The ultramodern black and white pattern has a grit and imperfection to it that’s very attractive and somewhat unique at this price point, and it would definitely be an unexpectedly edgy accompaniment to any black cocktail dress. If you’re particularly adventurous, try mixing it with other patterns. Buy through Nordstrom for $135.
