Lanvin Lacquered Resin Minaudière: Clutch It Good


Clutch it like a winner. Of all the clutches I’ve come across, this is seriously the coolest one I have ever seen! A hard-as-nails minaudière with a logo done right (and you know that doesn’t come along every day), it’s got a fresh feature that comes as a total surprise. Lanvin’s trademark scrawl of gold-tone hardware becomes a knuckle-duster when you lift it by its swingy hinges.


The clutch opens up to reveal pale pink calfskin lining – the perfect contrast to slick black lacquered resin. Wear it by the dainty chain strap for major nights out. But no matter how you carry it, it projects disco-cool with an Art Deco vibe, all in the form of a genius design. A piece like this proves one thing is for sure: Alber will be greatly missed. Here’s to him and his legacy. Lanvin clutch at Forward by Elyse Walker for $3,990.
