Fiona Kotur makes the very best minaudieres. Inspired by her seemingly innate sense of retro glamour and her love of a good high-low, modern-traditional mix, Fiona’s maiden namesake brand blends effortlessly elements like exotics, metals, weaves, and unexpected patterns, often at super-accessible prices to boot. Now KOTUR has taken the concept of blending to a higher level.
Meet the KOTUR for J.Crew collaboration, two brand-new styles that merge Fiona’s sense of mixed-material sophistication and J.Crew’s classic accessibility. The team-up promises the two only slightly dissimilar clutches – the Union and Colony – in a multitude of colors, fabrics, and skins, from silk brocade to gray flannel, sequins to shagreen. A tempting mélange, but at the end of the day, snakeskin is the surefire method for achieving instantaneous chic. It’s even better when it’s fluidly framed in glossy metal. Both boasting pillbox closures and tuck-away chain-straps, the Union is a crisp, boxy rectangle while the Colony embraces a curvier shape, less bold and more inviting.
Timelessly stylish and thrillingly affordable: what more could a girl want in her haute Kotur? At J. Crew for $425.
