Olivia Harris Studded Chain Clutch, Handbag of the Day
It's all about the details. Fashion is a statement, and simplicity doesn't always capture what we want to say. Sometimes, we feel less like a sleek black tote and more like a washed black leather clutch with a detachable part-chain strap and four artful smatterings of gold studs. That's just the way it is.
This attractive, complicated rocker-chic bag is 10"W X 6"H X just ¼"D. Flat bags like this are usually huge, so it's nice to see a small one -- perfect for stashing in your suitcase for a change-of-purse. It dresses up or down and is one of those unusual clutches that looks really good with its 19½" strap. The strap adds toughness, rather than appearing to be an afterthought.
The Olivia Harris Studded Chain Clutch is available from Saks Fifth Avenue for $299.00.
