Richard Lambertson and John Truex have quickly become one of our favorite design teams. Their designs are flawless, meticulous, pay close attention to each detail, and are ultimately wearable. The only downfall they ever fall on is being too safe, too far away from monogramming their bags. I am not asking for a tacky monogram all over, but they should show off a bit more, let us all know that this is theirs! With their clutches the signature LT closure signals that this is Lambertson Truex without going overboard. After reviewing the Lambertson Truex Gallo, I was left in love and wanting more. And with a shipment of quite a few Lambertson Truex Bags from the resort collection, we had a selection to choose from.

This is where the ultimately soft and chic Lambertson Truex Dietrich won my heart over. On paper it sounded great, in person it is amazing! This clutch is small but perfect for evenings and will easily fit in your hand without being awkwardly large or heavy. The sand python skin is given a sueded effect, which makes it buttery soft to the touch and strays from the flaky feeling python is known for. I have raved about sueding skins before, and this clutch only sent my love of this treatment further into handbag bliss. With natural earth-tone colors, this clutch can be worn season after season continuing to make a statement and not be out of style.

Not only does the outside meet my fancy, but the inside is as practical as they come. I played around with the clutch, and was able to fit my iPhone, credit cards, cash, lip gloss, and my car keys comfortably. And no, the clutch did not start bulging oddly, as if it were a python still alive devouring its lunch. The inside features three compartments with a slim middle separator. Again, the degree of practicality is astonishing. This is precisely what Lambertson Truex does best. They design bags that have stay power, so that the woman buying them will not have to retire the expensive “it” bag to the back of her closet.

The LT Dietrich will cost $1,295 and will available in stores beginning of November. You can also shop Lambertson Truex via Saks.

  • angela

    i’m sorry but i don’t like the look of that clutch *at all*! if it were one solid color (like purple or red) that would be one thing, but the way this one looks, it looks dirty/soiled..just my opinion…

  • Sarah

    I love love love this!!!!! Their designs are brilliant!!!! :mrgreen:

  • Fiona

    Very similar with the Compact clutch from Sergio Rossi. They came up with the python version two years ago. Like the interior of SR better though.

  • mette

    I´m not impressed about this one and I don´t like the inside color. Looks a bit too snaky too.

  • janis

    looks like it was thrown into sand…

    This is ALMOST what I’ve been searching for – but I’d prefer a straw clutch. Anyone?
