Stuff We Love: Bold, Bright Skins

This wow clutch from newcomer Jessica Grant is an instant outfit upgrade.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve no doubt noticed that this summer is all about color. And when it comes to accessorizing, bolder is better. That’s why we’re lusting after this striking “Lynda” snakeskin clutch from Suzan Paek, the designer behind Jessica Grant handbags, which debuted in fall 2011.

Paek says that the organic wrap-around design, done up in an exotic skin, is a nod to her Korean-American heritage: “I wanted something that made a statement and encapsulated how the natural skin would be,” she says. (The bags are handmade by artisans in Korea, too.)

The result? A sleek head-turner that’s available in ten hues. “It’s a conversation piece,” says Paek. “It’s something you can take from morning to evening.” Indeed, it’s roomy enough for all your sundries — finally, fashion and function see eye-to-eye.
