The Absolute Best Bags to Give This Holiday Season - See Our Gift Guide With Over 60 Options

December 15th: It’s 10 days until Christmas and we’re in the thick of the holiday party season, where everyone’s wearing great winter textures like cashmere and fur and wool and leather and heavy beading. This is the greatest time of the year for someone who truly adores clothing and accessories, and yet, I feel as though I’m stuck in a spring state of mind. The brights just won’t let me go!

With bags like the Emilio Pucci Python Box Clutch and Emilio Pucci Python Shoulder Bag starting to pop up for resort and spring, it’s tough to get excited about charcoal and navy. I appreciate subtlety, but I really appreciate candy-neon snakeskin.

What I really like about both of these bags is their simplicity. When you’ve got a punchy color and a luxurious texture going on at the same time, adding too many other design elements on top spoils the simple pleasures of neon and python. I don’t know exactly what kind of party would merit the use of this kind of box clutch, but if I had it, I’m sure I could find an event. The pink crossbody, on the other hand, is entirely self-explanatory.

    On Argentina we´re still in spring for a couple more days before starting summer, so I´m all for candy-neon python! These are gorgeous! Although sadly out of my budget :(

    I loved the pink crossbody as soon as I saw it on the NAP online magazine a few weeks ago, before it’d even hit the New Arrivals. And I was holding out and holding out and baiting my breath, and it all came out in one huge disappointed rush when I saw the price tag. I mean, didn’t really expect anything affordable given it’s Pucci and python… still, a girl can dream.

    I LOVE the clutch! The crossbody is adorable but a little too tween for me. The clutch on the other hand is playful, fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously… LUV!

    Leave it to Pucci for super bright colors. They’re good at it.
