On first examination, I really, really like the Zambos & Siega Twiggy Clutch. The lines are extremely clean and sophisticated, the shape is easy to hold, and the color is versatile and more unexpected and fresh than black. I particularly love the way that the white between the embossed scales bleeds into the dark grey of the scales themselves – it makes the finish all the more eye-catching and is an effect that’s not used nearly enough.
On second examination, though, I’m irritated. This bag, like the last bag from Zambos & Siega that I reviewed, is not real leather. The price is low for a high-end clutch, but not low enough to justify using a fake material. If I wanted a vinyl bag, I could easily find one for a fraction of the price at Target or Forever 21. From a brand that expects to charge this much, I want more than PVC, even if that means a slight increase in the price. I’d much rather have the real thing and pay extra for it. Buy through ShopBop for $65.
