Oscar de la Renta may be one of the world’s most celebrated designers, but he still has a lot to prove when it comes to creating handbags. The label known more for its exquisite gowns and impeccable understanding of a woman’s silhouette however, surprised us with this charming bamboo clutch we spotted while poring through their online selection. Simple, chic and stylish, we haven’t stopped picturing this clutch with a spectrum of ensembles since this morning. Honestly.
There’s a slight danger in fashioning a clutch bag made from natural cork but the label effortlessly toned down its countryside aesthetic with the addition of brass hardware. It also slightly toughened up the otherwise fragile-looking clutch. The bamboo clasp closure took the theme a notch chicer as well. This truly channeled the season’s refreshing aesthetics even in the absence of the formulaic use of zesty yellows or paisley prints, yielding a beautifully crafted clutch that thrives in simplicity. Oscar de la Renta’s bamboo clutch is available on its website for $1,995.
