Alexander Wang Jena Clutch in Cut Velvet Leather


Do not buy an Alexander Wang bag if you want a flashy “look at me I’m trendy!” bag.  That’s not to say his bags are not on trend; in fact, they’re so hip they are in a league of its own (much like the designer’s RTW collection).  Alexander Wang bags do not shout out at you; they bait you in, daring you to discover its little secrets behind deceptively simple details: zippers with hidden pockets, studs peeking through the bottom of a bag, or a chain slightly exposed.  His latest must have, the Jena clutch in cut velvet leather, is a rock and roll twist on the timeless envelope clutch.  All it took was placing exposed zipper fastenings on the fold over flap to take it from suburban chic to urban edge.  The oversized clutch (13.5″ x 8″) will take you anywhere and this neutral color will go with anything.  What’s not to love?!

  1. Absolutely gorgeous!! This is my current dream clutch. It is at once understated and effortlessly cool; just a hint of sensual appeal with the use of the velvet leather!

  2. What’s not to love? The zipper placement. It’s just weird. Other than that, I love an envelope clutch. This clutch is HUGE and not for the faint of heart.
