Derek Lam Albertine Clutch

Derek Lam Albertine Clutch

Let's face it, ladies. Finding a chic, reasonably priced designer clutch can seem like an impossible task at times. You'll spot the perfect neutral, roomy design that will take you from day to evening, but it'll cost you over $1000 to make it yours. Perhaps you have your eye on a relatively inexpensive clutch, but it's too big or too small or just plain boring. Even the attractive price tag can't get you to commit to it. So you give up your search in the hope of finding a clutch that possesses all the qualities you're looking for someday down the road. Well, that day is here. Derek Lam's Albertine Clutch is as perfect a clutch as you're likely to find anywhere.

The breakdown: An intriguing asymmetrical design, structured shape and fun tasseled zipper pull start the 'Albertine' down the path to perfection. Soft black leather gives the bag a comfortable feel in the hand and ensures its versatility any season of the year. Details like a rear frame compartment with push-lock closure and the aforementioned goldtone-accented tassel pull are enticing features that give the design its modern look. The asymmetrical fold-over front flap opens up to a roomy 10 x 5 x 1.5 interior. I love a bag that allows the owner to stick their entire hand inside. Accessing your essentials should be easy, not complicated like performing surgery. Finally, the $690 price tag is reasonable for a Derek Lam design, and, considering how well appointed this clutch is (the interior even boasts pockets for added storage), I'd say you're getting quite a deal.

Derek Lam Python Albertine Clutch

Now that your search for the perfect clutch is finally over, all that's left to do is nab one at In case you're interested in something with some added punch, black python (pictured) and grey python versions of the small 'Albertine' are also available for $990. Call 212-966-1616 to order.

    LOVE this clutch - all versions. Have eyed it for a while. I think the frame section does it for me. I am a sucker for the framed bags :)
