Gryson's taken the path less traveled and passed over familiar exotic skins for shark, stingray, and wooly astrakhan and karakul pelts. The unusual materials are married with frames crafted from ebony wood, rhodoid, and metal. Semi-precious stone clasps made of opal and mother-of-pearl complete the elegant purses. The Capsule line features two distinctive evening bag silhouettes and an earthy, on trend color palette.
I really like the traditional clutch purses at the bottom of the image, but I also find myself drawn to the evening purses above. Clutches are everywhere, so it's exciting to find an after-five accessory with a different shape and style.
Gryson said she created the collection as an alternative to the "pristine stuffy stuff" so prevalent in the luxury sector. The range features the kind of purses you'd probably carry on a dinner date or a night at the theater, although I imagine they'd work just as well on the red carpet.
They are expensive though, although I wouldn't call them exorbitant for bags made with such opulent materials. You'll find the Capsule by Joy Gryson collection priced from $850 to $2,700 at selected boutiques.
