Rauwolf Spring 2013 Collection: New World Order

Rauwolf Clutches from Spring/Summer 2013

It is beyond refreshing to discover a gorgeous line of clutches that are too modern to compare to jewels yet too pretty to not make the allusion! “Rauwolf was born out of a desire to infuse product with more innovation and push the use of materials into the 21st century,” says designer Kristine Johannes. Now her desire has become a reality. This new collection consists of unexpected materials like Plexiglass and mirrors, handcrafted in Italy, to create striking, gleaming box-clutches like we’ve never seen before.
I love the shapes: multi-faceted, some octagonal and all highly architectural; they are so original and remind me of perfume bottles. What a relief to see hard-case clutches that aren’t simply oval or rectangular! Ultra-contemporary (almost futuristic, even), with a nod to mid-century modernism, these are super-fun now and will be equally cool to pull out of your archives in 20 years. My favorite has to be the brilliant sputnik clutch; it’s deeply geometric, and I love, love, love it. I can’t wait until Rauwolf hits Barneys New York in time for Spring 2013.
Prices range from $1,715-$2,245.
