The fashion world is never lacking in options when it comes to sophisticated evening clutches. This season alone offers a spectrum of clutch bags as wide as the limit—or the absence of—one’s imagination. As always at the Fashion Glamour headquarters, we looked out for standout bags deserving of our nitpicky preferences. One of this week’s finds—a Stella McCartney perforated box clutch—is as precious as the hue it arrives in.
The attention this gold-tone brass clutch commands is immediate and unassuming, which truthfully surprised us because coming across a gold-tone clutch like this is another fashion ubiquity. We owe this piece’s charm to the calculated imperfection of its shape, which happily departed from the formality of a box-shaped clutch. The perforated exterior lends then right textured toughness to contest against the radiant gold finish. While anything that peeks through punctured holes has the tendency to look tacky, the ivory satin lining was subtle and dainty.
The clutch bag comes with a chain strap and a clasp fastening that stayed true to the bag’s minimalist aesthetics. With such a commanding tone, Stella McCartney did right in letting the gold tone speak volumes for the bag. We can only imagine how divine this bag would look when worn with a classic LBD or when paired with matching gold accessories. Wearing this with a tailored suit will look just as good too.
If the need for an elegant clutch bag comes along, Stella McCartney’s perforated box clutch is the one to nab. It doesn’t hurt that it has a timeless quality to it, which quietly yearns for a space in your treasure trove of designer pieces.
The bag retails for $2,415 at Net-a-Porter.
