Who’s feeling lucky? Kotur’s latest collection is inspired by old school casinos, from the lit-up Las Vegas strip to the Atlantic City boardwalk – and it’s inspiring me to take a gamble on some new, good-time clutches. This is the kind of cheeky theme that colorful perspex box clutches were made for.

I love Tom Ford's version of the classic Hermès Kelly top-handle tote. A riff on the quintessential style, the Icon is still infused with his signature details, like an oversized zipper and well-placed, high-impact hardware.

From manicures to MacBook options, marble is officially the coolest texture of the year. I can’t think of anything fresher right now, whether it’s in printed form (as seen on Balenciaga’s paneled silk tee) or in the mega-impact form of a clutch.

I love a bag with some mystery to it. This Inge Christopher clutch feels like something you picked up while on an exotic vacation, but – surprise! – you can buy it without picking up a plane ticket, and for under $200, no less. Rich-looking, smooth yet textural, and as discreet as can be, the wood panels are striking and unique. Not to mention fully versatile.

Pushing the envelope is a must. As a designer, you should always strive to create something unique and personality-driven. But it’s possible to push the envelope past the point of no return. And as a designer, you should also know when to stop.

Sometimes you’ve just got to simplify your life, and it all starts with the wallet. Take a close look at what you have in your giant continental wallet, and you will find useless receipts, business cards from people you can't even remember meeting, club cards for random stores, and way too many coins.
