Rochas Tab Clutch: A Tab You’ll Actually Want to Pick Up!


Bags in the simplest designs are always the ones that strike me as the most astonishing. The elements of this Rochas clutch are as noncomplex as can be: a few seams there, an oversized tab, and that about rounds it out! Altogether, it is a dream. That’s because the seams are conscientious and impeccable and the tab is constructed with the thoughtfulness of a work of graphic art. The top of the tab is actually a flap, designed for your fingers to pull on; at once, it also delivers an emphatic dose of unexpected dimension. But all of this would amount to nothing more than a moot point if the leather wasn’t so smooth and high-quality. It always comes down to the skin, doesn’t it? This svelte leather is key for such a minimalistic design, especially in a neutral tone that somehow couldn’t be creamier if it tried. In essence, simply lush! At Barneys New York for $980.

Pair with: A clutch that’s on the rigid side, with seams of squared and rectangular shapes calls for a dress with languid draping. 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s draped taupe mini has a touch of Grecian goddess to its asymmetrical flow. On Net-a-Porter for $550.

  1. I am a fan of brightly colored or blinged out bags. But this one would work perfectly for when I want to go to church or out to dinner with my husband.
