Even if you’re a true pragmatist when it comes to your bags, the holiday season is the time for you to veer off and adopt a festive attitude. I’m talking all-out frivolous with bags that are pure fun.
Enter Olympia Le-Tan. She’s a genius at turning silly into a luxury statement. A cotton cylinder clutch with tufts of frayed appliqués bursting from the faces of a mini army of embroidered soldiers can only be successfully designed by someone who knows no creative bounds – yet understands how to stay within the bounds of chic. Best of all, this is the definition of a fun piece, like a toy for grownups, yet you can be confident carrying it for any occasion, from the most formal of fetes to a weekend BBQ. It may not seem like an heirloom at first glance, but imagine if your mom gave this to you now, you would DIE, and be super-impressed by her ridiculously amazing style, right? Exactly. Olympia Le-Tan clutch at Farfetch for $1,460.
