Depending on who you ask, feathers can be the most loved or reviled adornment in all of fashion. Some people find feathers cheesy and costume-y and prefer not to wear them, others think exactly the same things about them but feel that those are actually admirable qualities. I normally find myself in the second group, if only for variety’s sake, and the Maison Martin Margiela Feather Clutch is something I’d wear without a second thought.

Margiela’s stock-in-trade is a sort of cockeyed minimalism, and the simple backing for this bundle of tonal green feathers helps this design walk the line between interesting and odd that the brand loves to walk so often.

The only apprehension I have about this bag is one of dosage. Things like feathers are more charming when used sparingly, and at 13 inches wide, this bag is the size of your everyday shoulder bag. And in fact, if you’re particularly adventurous, this could be your everyday bag – the strap is adjustable so that it’s not just an oversized clutch. I’d like it better in a nine-inch variation, but the color and finish of Margiela’s feathers are interesting nonetheless. Buy through Saks for $1415.
