Marchesa Lily and Iris Clutches: Marchesa Does Stingray Right

January 24, 2013

The ladies of Marchesa have taken their couture-level skills and intricate craftsmanship to their bag collection. Their latest offering of feminine yet strong clutches and minaudieres are on par with Marchesa?s gowns: dreamy, decadent and out-of-this-world glamorous.

When it comes to stingray, it is hit or miss. Tough skin (that resembles rock-hard caviar, no less) can come across looking indelicate, but in the duo's expert hands, it turns into an exotic gemstone. With jewel-inspired structure and their signature crystal clasp ? which is like jewelry in itself ? this is no ordinary evening accessory. On the Iris miaudiere ($1,995), the glittering stone theme is carried through with pave crystal straps. Or you can trade them for high-impact red with the Lily box clutch ($1,695). Whichever you choose, you can heartily regard your piece as an exquisite and timeless investment.

Pair with: Get your full Marchesa fix with no red carpet required (and no six-figure price tag). Notte by Marchesa?s flapper-inspired sequin dress is cocktail party-ready. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $795.
