Burberry Prorsum Studded Leather Clutch: Foxy Babe

Just a couple weeks ago, I honored an edited group of pumped-up pouch-style clutches, but now I have to think again, as Burberry Prorsum’s latest edition puts all others to shame. That fox! Who can resist? Gold cone studs on structured black leather – a simple zip-around closure keeps the vibe tough and unfussy – are enough to get my adrenaline pumping, no matter how many times I’ve seen it before. But a sculpted, doorknocker-inspired fox friend, complete with gingerly clasped paws (kind of ladylike of the creature, huh?), puts things over the edge. Burberry has clearly mastered the blend of traditional English (remember, this a nation of fox-hunters) and rebel-punk style with this bit of city-worthy wildlife. On Net-a-Porter for $3,295.

Pair with: Forget sprawling fields. Get on the manhunt with Gianvito Rossi’s too-sexy-for-words knee-high boots. In plush red suede and topped with a laced-up tassel detail, you’ll take the word foxy to brave new heights. At Barneys New York for $1,685.

  1. I like this! I even like the bigger version with the door-knocker….there is just something about them. I am not going to purchase one as I feel it will be dated and over after this season…but if someone gave it to me I would love to carry it.

  2. What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this. You just say so many things that arrive from nowhere that Im fairly sure Id have a fair shot. Your weblog is terrific visually, I mean people wont be bored. But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this topic.
