When Lanvin sent their Spring 2011 collection down the runway, the overall theme was about structured handbags. It was the finale bags, small, egg-shaped, and funky, that caught our attention.

The bag that kept my attention however is the Lanvin Leaf Box Clutch. We did not cover this in our runway review, but it deserves a prevalent spot among other Spring 2011 bags.

The small clutch is a standout not only from the obvious gold leaf hardware on the front of the bag but also because of the snakeskin box shape. Instead of this being turned into a clutch, Lanvin made it shoulder wearable with a long brown leather strap. There is something very rugged chic (think Roman goddess) about this design and I am loving it. Shop Lanvin at Net-A-Porter.
