How To Wear Manolo Blahnik’s First Ever Handbag Collection


Today Manolo Blahnik launched his first full line of handbags. The gorgeous line of jewel-encrusted evening bags will be available this fall and although initially the line seems best suited for black-tie weddings and galas—events Manolo aficionados and It girls attend on the regular—there is also a place for these clutches in the average girl’s wardrobe. Afterall, if you’re going to splurge on a handbag, it needs to be versatile. We show you how to rock one of these beauties for day and night.

Look For Day

Pulling off a bedazzled evening clutch during the day is all about creating contrast. Use a diamonds-and-jeans approach and opt for slouchy distressed denim, paired with a gauzy t-shirt, snake-print mules and oversize retro sunglasses.

Look For Night

Don't make the mistake of pairing a rhinestone clutch with crystal earrings or equally embellished heels. Make evening separates look modern with unexpected black jet or beaded tassel earrings and gray suede sandals.
