Item of the Day: Ashlyn’d Clutches

In Item of the Day, What's New by Lauren Parker

Ashlyn'd clutch With the Fashion Accessories Benefit Ball (FABB) coming up tomorrow, we’re all frantic to buy (or, ahem, borrow) the perfect box clutch to go with our black cocktail dress. But as we peruse lookbooks of elegant black crystal minaudieres, we wonder, does a cocktail party have to be so…serious?

Enter this adorable Kenny clutch from Ashlyn’d Clutches. It’s one part emoji, one part Sesame Street and one part feather boa caught in a blender…all in the best possible way.

Ashlyn’d CEO and designer Ashlee Nik created her line in 2013 after feeling there was a lack of unique and affordable options in the market place. She set out to to explore the idea of making bags that were “entirely unexpected.” And succeed she did.

With affixed movable eyes on the outside and colorful neon feathers that float between the Lucite exterior and inside case, this item is pure fun. All those plain black minaudieres at FABB will be jealous.

Retail: $410.
