crazy good clutches
Last week I went to the Designers and Agents show in LA, a bi-annual trade show where designers exhibit and sell their upcoming collections, and I came across a booth stocked with the most drool-worthy, distinctly chic clutches by Brazil-based label Serpui Marie. There were sleek zig zig mother of pearl minaudieres, ombre silk clutches and eye-popping neon snakeskin styles. They were all insane: delicate, refined and elegant yet decidedly modern and super wearable. I asked the sales rep if I could make a personal order. She said I'd need to order 10, as the designer only sells to the trade (i.e. retailers). I asked for a line sheet, took some pics, and promptly emailed friends to see if they wanted to order one as well. One hour later I had 23 orders--a testament to the bags' insaneness. I am telling you: you must get your hands on one of these puppies when they ship to stores in February. They retail between $150-$500. The bags I bought (a white snakeskin minaudiere and a mother of pearl one) will be sold at Kitson. Be on the lookout!
