Be & D Chain Strap Lambskin Clutch, Handbag of the Day
This tactile spin on the classic envelope clutch features thick stitching, center ruching and chunky silvertone hardware. The look is clean and sophisticated, and relaxed, while obviously expensive. We are charmed by the chain link strap, and especially by how it attaches to the smart silvertone rings.
The soft brown lambskin clutch is 10½"W X 7¾"H X ½"D; a comfortable size for shopping and lunching. Be wary of the limitations of an envelope clutch, though -- if we saw someone stuffing this thing with objects too large for its delicate width, we'd feel justified in making a citizen's arrest (but we probably wouldn't).
The Be & D Chain Strap Lambskin Clutch is available from Saks Fifth Avenue for $398.00.
