Tory Burch Rattan Flap Clutch | Woven Purse with Leather Logo Closure

Tory Burch Rattan ClutchTory Burch gets rustic with this Rattan Flap Clutch.

Rattan is less luxurious than the materials Burch usually plays with, but it's perfect for this warm weather we've all been enjoying. The geometric wicker weave makes this rattan feel a bit more sophisticated than it normally does, but there's no escaping that this is a casual material. I think that works well for this time of year though, as we're more likely to be enjoying pool parties and beach barbeques than the posh dos of December.

The leather flap with its Tory Burch logo stamps its designer pedigree, and gives the clutch some individual personality. I think this cheery Sake Gold shade is perfect for the season, but we can also choose it in black, gold, silver, and poppy red.

I'm not ordinarily a fan of logos, but for every rule there's always an exception. As Burch's branding is so abstract, I think she gets away with it. It acts as an aesthetic element as much as it does advertising, and elevates what might have otherwise been a relatively dull design.

This rattan clutch is large but basic, with only a small and insignificant slip pocket inside. Pouches like this are really token gestures, as they're to small to hold anything of substance, but we've never expected practicality from a clutch purse. While I'm griping, the lack of shoulder strap is also disappointing. No one wants to spend an evening holding onto a handbag, no matter how pretty it is.

At $275 this clutch costs more than I'd expect to pay for a rattan purse, but its seasonal charm might just sway anyone with the cash to spare.
