Minimal accessories are having a moment. From Celine Trios to Mansur Gavriel Buckets, a whole host of fashion consumers have decided that they’re largely sick of bags that are overdone and overwrought, and with that decision has come a wave of tightly edited, pared-down pieces that are easy, functional and understated. To get the look under $200, we highly recommend the Busk and Bask Loess Wrap Clutch.
It doesn’t always work out this way, but often, minimalism can be a boon to consumers; leaving off extraneous details, embellishments and hardware from a design helps keep production costs down, and generally that means that beautiful, well-edited pieces can be had for prices that are a bit lower than you might expect. Often, those pieces are from indie designers that are awaiting their chance at wide-ranging exposure, such as Busk and Bask.
The company’s bags are produced in a small design studio in Nevada, and this clutch is a perfect casual option that could be used in basically any season because of the light, but not pastel, leather. It goes without saying, of course, that the price point ($160 via Ahalife) is perfect, and for that, you get an ever-so-slightly off-kilter take on a classic envelope bag.
