Kelly Wearstler Scales Clutch: She’s Got It All

Meet my new favorite clutch! Kelly Wearstler has already taken the interior design world by storm (the Viceroy resorts and BG at Bergdorf Goodman, to name a few), and I’m so happy she has set her unique eye on fashion. Kelly has described her sensibility as “old-world Hollywood with a modern vibe,” and how well it translates to bag form!

Kelly has taken a few of my favorite things – snakeskin, jewels, and impeccable color-blocking – and melded them into the Art Deco-influenced Scales clutch. It doesn’t get more versatile than this. A graphic panel of black-on-ivory watersnake makes for a surprisingly stark contrast against black lambskin leather. The exotic skin is somehow so much more striking in a minimized measure. And the pyrite clasp is the cherry on top. Chunky and brass-trimmed, it’s like a big, statement-making cocktail ring. And trust me, when this is in your hand, you’ll feel like you’re carrying a real gem.

At Kelly Wearstler for $995.

Pair with: A wispy earring will balance out the strong lines of your clutch. Jeeyun Ha Designs ultra-thin and delicate 14-karat droppers take feathers into chic territory.  At Net-a-Porter for $160.

Don’t forget to meet Kelly Wearstler at Neiman Marcus North Park today from 6pm-8pm!
