When it comes to vacation buddies, I believe a fabulously bright, crocodile box clutch is the perfect travel companion. Use it store jewels when it’s packed in your suitcase, and then use it to rev up absolutely any ensemble once you’ve hit your destination.
And since we’re talking exotics, it’s no surprise Nancy Gonzalez has the box clutch nailed. (Kelly recently covered one of Nancy’s also entitled the Box, but that fold-over design is a slightly modified rectangle.) This colorful assortment is delivered in a true box design, so graphic and architectural, it would be gorgeous to display on your coffee table when it’s not in use.
From deep pink to refreshing aqua to perky blue, whichever you choose, the Box is too pretty to not show off. But it’s eye-catching yellow that’s the must-have. Hear me now: if you buy one clutch this season, make it this one!
