Want to make a statement? Bruno Frisoni knows how. Check out how he took Roger Vivier’s classic rhinestone buckle pilgrim clutch and refashioned it out of white cord. Yes, white cord. The pricey clutch is from the label’s new, and limited edition, Rendez-Vous collection that’s aimed at presenting not only Vivier’s craftsmanship, but a more contemporary direction to boot. While I think this design is both fun and fashion-forward, I simply cannot justify its high four-figure price tag. While it may not be easy to assemble the cords in a perfect cold, do we forget that this bag has no exotic skin on it? At more than $8,000 (when you factor in tax), I expect at least crocodile trim, if not lining. Do you agree Bag Snobs? Thank goodness I don’t ever have a need to carry clutches; I’m happy to admire this exquisite piece from afar.
