I am a self-proclaimed Mansur Gavriel bag addict, and like so many, have refreshed their website countless times to get my hands on one of their coveted bags. If you are familiar with this brand, you will know that these bags are so hard to find that getting one is like winning the lottery before. I am lucky enough to already own their famous bucket bag and this spring, I am happy to add the Moon Clutch to my mini collection. Today, I want to share with you a bit more about this unique clutch and hopefully inspire you to get your hands on one before its sold out.
I was on the hunt for a new spring bag lately and stopped by my local Holt Renfrew to check out their Mansur Gavriel section and instantly fell in love with the Moon Clutch. Shown at their spring presentation during NYFW, the clutch was already on my radar. A "zippered pouch with a flat bottom and curved top" (1), the Moon clutch comes in a array of colours and leathers such as suede, textured and smooth. I got mine in black smooth leather again like my bucket because I like the aging of this particular material. The inside is lined in a beige canvas with a gold zipper and has a pocket that you can store your lipsticks, keys and compact. It also has a strap that you can coil around your wrist for extra comfort. What sold me on this particular clutch is its roominess and sophisticated nature. A pet peeve of mine are bags that I can't fit my life into and bags that aren't versatile. A good bag purchase entails that you can wear the bag over and over again, for different occasions and can adapt into your lifestyle seamlessly.
To match this refreshing crescent shaped clutch, I needed an outfit that is equally polished and chic. Hence I entrusted my light weight khaki trench coat and skinny jeans for a tailored look perfect for a quick meeting downtown. Since I didn't feel like wearing too much colour, I kept everything pretty much in black and added a skinny scarf for a trendy touch to the look. No sophisticated attire is complete without a pair of quality black pumps, so I chose this pair of Jimmy Choo's that is versatile enough to take to the boardroom and an evening function just like the clutch.
Multi-functional yet elegant, this half-moon clutch is a "buy now" item that will be a "forever piece" in your collection (2). Don't forget to shop below for other half-moon bag styles perfect for spring.
