Cleobella's accessories haven't always hit the mark for me. They often seem so concerned with being fashion forward that they are destined to date quickly. But by taking a more unusual, pared back approach, Cleobella's ensured its Wenona clutch is a keeper.
Its vibrant aqua color gives the Wenona a Southwestern feel which is complemented by the purse's Native American inspired golden feather accent. But Cleobella stops short of making this the kind of kitschy tribal purse we've seen released so often lately. It's done that with bags like the Hudson and the Mexicana, and it sees no reason to retread the same ground. Instead it finishes the Wenona with casual, almost haphazard horizontal pleating. The relaxed pleats work well with the Wenona's supple leather, creating a soft finish that's ideal for making the day to night transition.
That versatility is helped by the Wenona's generous dimensions. There's space for more than evening essentials, although you'll need to pack it carefully. Cleobella doesn't offer us a shoulder strap, so we're left to do all the heavy lifting by hand. Fill it too full and it'll become difficult to manage.
I always hesitate to spend more than $100 on a clutch, but when it's as versatile as this one it's another matter. At $259 the Wenona is no bargain, but it is good value for a purse with so much substance and style.
