Mad by Design takes the path less traveled for this eye-catching Sangria clutch. But has the label gone too far?
I really like many of the Sangria's elements, but I can't shake the feeling that Mad by Design got lost somewhere along the way. The three-dimensional geometric design is so striking, and the complementary quilting complements it beautifully. I also really like the way the silver curved frame emphasizes the Sangria's half-moon shape.
If Mad by Design had left things there, the Sangria would probably be a better clutch. Sadly though it overcomplicated things by adding bronze studs and a gaudy rhinestone covered clasp. The label needs to remember that less is so often more.
A purse like this will never be very practical, but Mad by Design does what it can to make its Sangria user-friendly. It's a little longer than your average clutch, so we should be able to sneak a few little extras inside it. It also has a card pocket, so it's a bit easier to leave our wallets behind. I don't think the silver chain strap really gels with the rest of the design, but it's a convenient addition nonetheless.
The Sangria had the potential to be a really stunning purse, but it hasn't quite reached those dizzy heights. However for $34.95, it still represents great value.
