Sometimes I love it when designers give their leather a subtle sparkle, and sometimes I hate it. The Seven For All Mankind Ibiza Clutch is a great example of glitter done right – meaning, it’s done subtly and on a small bag. After writing about the Marc by Marc Jacobs Croc of Q Linda Clutch yesterday, I started thinking about other examples of design elements that work best in small quantities, and this one of them. A bag full of glittery leather can be a bit much, particularly if the leather is dark and the glitter stands out against it. SFAM got it right with this one, though, by using the sparkle effect on light leather and for a small bag. The glitter is the feature here, since the bag has no visible hardware, and a simple knot adds to the personality. This would be a perfect bag for a night out in warm weather – dressy and glam without being stuffy or dark. Buy through Shop Bop for $225.
