Givenchy “Pexi” Evening Bag: The Call of the Wild

Riccardo Tisci says his spring collection was inspired by all the exotic animals in Frida Kahlo’s paintings. With this bag, I can’t wait for life to imitate art. A convertible shoulder to clutch, this sexy beast has got your whole day covered. Practical touches make it: magnetic closure keeps your goods secure, and I love discovering a pocket under the flap – all flap bags should sport this convenient feature! A Givenchy specialty is the simultaneous understated yet noticeably cool closure (look closely at lots of other bags; they just don’t have it). Consider this a cunningly wise purchase. Animal print will never be passé, as long as you invest in a true classic. This calf-hair purse will live forever, so go ahead and answer to your inner Jungle Jane. At Barneys New York for $1,985.

Pair with: A neutral pair of multi-strapped, multi-toned Reed Krakoff stacked sandals will keep this wild thing classy. With retro flair, they also keep your sense of irony in tact. Reed Krakoff Leather Multi-Strap Sandals, $650.
