Clutch Play

Unless you’re a socialite, you probably don’t want to spend money on a clutch, but this is a time of year when you may need one. Here are several of-the-moment choices, all appropriate for the most sophisticated holiday soirée. ALEXANDER WANG: In oxblood leather with suede side panels, this one is chicly understated, with a snake chain handle to catch the eye. VINCE CAMUTO: The brand’s current collection has two standouts — a structured clutch with a horn handle, available in an array of materials, from zigzags to gold rhinestones; and an ultramodern hexagram-shaped suede clutch with geometric overlays in zinc alloy. ALDO: This simple black clutch, with a cool metal flap closure, is stylish bargain at $35. MICHAEL KORS: Sleek black calfskin with dazzling silver tiles, from the designer whose name is synonymous with jet set. —Lola Ehrlich and John Birmingham
