Give an envelope clutch some attitude with the Charlie from BCBGeneration.
The shape of this synthetic leather purse is simple. A big flap and thin body mean it resembles that eponymous envelope quite accurately, although you would be unlikely to find one in an exotic snakeskin print down at your local stationers! The difference is added by the silver metal trim. Not only does it look smart, but it also adds a little more strength to the design.
Whilst the contrast between black and silver may make this a stylish purse, it is a shame that we don’t get to feel real leather when we carry it around. Costing $78, you could expect the genuine article, so it is a bit of a let down to have a fake alternative.
The fact that the designers have opted out of the more expensive version of materials is more apparent when we look inside this purse. The BCBG monogrammed interior is a little shiny, although the inclusion of a pocket does redeem it a bit.
The Charlie is pretty and rocky too, a lovely reinterpretation of the envelope style.
