Forget everything you think about bows. Frills, fluff, and sugary-sweetness: let it all go. Sara Battaglia has taken aim at the bow and scored a bull?s eye, whipping it into something hard, sculptural, and totally modern. Not only is it a clever way to rethink the girly detail, it?s also makes for an ingenious way to incorporate a handle onto a minaudière. Or you can opt to maintain the effect and clutch it as you normally would.
Art Deco inspiration translates perfectly into firm lines, from the ribbing of the body (which is lined in silk) to the golden edges, marbled on one side for even more visual intrigue. This could easily be vintage, a precious score from decades ago, or from next season. In a word, timeless. What more do you want if you?re after a standout versatile clutch? Remember: sometimes its good to be different. On Luisa via Roma for $1,100.
Pair with: Contrast strength with something soft and feminine, like Lover?s sensual lace skirt. A scalloped hem of cherry-pink blossoms is your answer. On Net-a-Porter for $550.
