Balmy Bag

by The Zoe Report

Between Monday’s tribal runway look and the fringe-y platforms we focused on yesterday, we suspect you may be catching on to our seasonal obsession: anything tropical! Keeping the theme thriving, today we are pointing our polished fingers in the direction of Dries Van Noten’s sultry clutch.

From the catwalk to your closet, this exotic minaudière captures the same steamy motif as seen throughout the Dries Van Noten show—notably demonstrated in this statement-sleeve frock. Constructed of 100% cotton fabric with metallic gold hardware lining the closure, it will add a tropical twist to your every last summer getup. Our outfit instinct? Style it with a relaxed blazer, boyfriend jeans and ankle-strap heels—and bring on the balmy weather!

Availability: Dries Van Noten Clutch ($705, available at Barneys New York, 212.826.8900 and Jeffrey New York, 212.206.1272). For additional information, visit Driesvannoten.com.
