I need a white clutch, but pure ivory always seems too boring to buy. That is, unless it’s a laser-cut exotic by Nancy Gonzalez. Leave it to the queen of croc. A beautiful (if not decadently wasteful) way to use the skin, the lacy cutout-floral effect makes her classic flap clutch thoroughly fresh and exciting.
Croc has never looked so supple, and positioned over a raw, nude underlay, pretty flowers receive a touch of rusticity. In the most luxuriant way possible, of course (forget boho-chic; this is straight-up chic). Just don’t bring it out after-dark or pair it with an evening dress. All softness and light, this is definitely a day clutch, unless you find yourself at a beachy resort – which is just the trip for this bag. Otherwise, the combination of blossoms and blanca is sunshine-specific.
At Neiman Marcus for $1,600.
Pair with: Yes, freshness is in the details, and the same goes for color-blocking. When Christian Louboutin combines yellow, teal, and pink, a la the Sylvieta sandal, it’s a strong counterpoint to a neutral accessory.
On Net-a-Porter for $1,095.
