Diane von Furstenberg Snakeskin Embossed Clutch, $350 via Matches

It may not seem like a revolutionary handbag, but I’ve been waiting for this teal and black version of the Diane von Furstenberg Harri Clutch to make its debut for what seems like 800 years – ever since I saw it on the Fall 2011 runway way back in February. In reality, it’s a matter of months, but in fashion time that’s an utter eternity. Still, something about the simple color combination and clean lines of this clutch gets under my skin, and I’d like it to get into my closet.

This type of texture is the perfect (and perfectly affordable) in-between for someone who wants to experiment with color but who isn’t quite sure if they’re ready to make, say, turquoise a wardrobe staple quite yet. Because the clutch is half black, it’s a little more accessible for someone who tends to stick with dark colors for evening events. If you’re a little more adventurous (or just sick of snakeskin), DvF has two more interesting options in the same shape that I’ve included after the jump. If you prefer the snake texture (as I do), you can get it for $350 via Matches.

    Gorgeous! I think it’s worth the wait. Even when the snakeskin trend is over, it’ll still be a great clutch.

      Snakeskin is definitely trendy at the moment but I feel like it’s a classic as long as there aren’t too many other things going on with it (like this DVF beauty!). I also feel the same way about tortoise… and leopard/cheetah/etc despite the fact that it’s too omnipresent at the moment :( Maybe just in small doses. I’m proud to say I had snakeskin flats from over three years ago as well as calf hair leopard ones from a year and a half ago! I plan to continue wearing these even when the trends pass!
