A black leather clutch that’s clean but not boring. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that are the hardest to find, because they necessitate a certain balance of qualities that brand after brand manages to get wrong. There’s too much detail, or not enough; or the level of craftsmanship and quality falls short.

Not so for Alexander McQueen’s Folk Clutch.

The aesthetic

Remember the philosophy of the curated wardrobe? This type of clutch fills the space in that theoretical wardrobe that McQueen’s more outlandish knuckle-box clutches don’t. We love it because it can easily be elegant, but can certainly be tough, too. In fact its hard to think of a situation that this swiss army knife of a clutch wouldn’t prove useful for. Sweeping silk gowns to leather minis – morning to midnight.

The finer details

Each Folk Clutch is created from a continuous piece of leather by a veteran master leatherworker. The deliberately prominent, handcrafted whipstitching adds just enough detail to keep things interesting yet still classic. Inside the clutch is a cotton canvas lining.

The investment

The Alexander McQueen Black Folk Clutch is available online at alexandermcqueen.com. It retails for £895.00.
