Suddenly, I’m in the mood for a star-studded event. No, I don’t necessarily want to get all dressed up and mingle with celebrities. I just want to snap up Givenchy’s star-studded minaudiere – carrying this clutch for the first time is an exclusive event in itself. What makes it so cool is the fact that it’s not showy, or flashy, or glitzy, or colorful. Sparkle and embellishment: check and check, but it’s the kind of jet-black decadence only suited for the most confident of bad girls (with good style).
Monochrome crystals knock the preppy connotation right out of nautical-star adornments, and topped with an evening-ready closure, as well as a hideaway, gun-metal chain-strap (pull it out when hands get full), this is one starry-eyed clutch that begs to get into trouble. I’ll happily oblige. Available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman for $2,670 (expected to ship by March 7th).
Pair with: Get a little glam-rock with some knuckle-dusting, knock-around costume jewels. Kenneth Jay Lane is the man for the job, and this gold-plated, Swarovski-crystal cocktail ring packs a punch – literally and figuratively. On Net-a-Porter for $180.
