Clara Kasavina abandons her usual intricate metal work for this python Suzy clutch.
Python is arguably more luxurious than metal, but funnily enough this clutch doesn’t feel as special as her usual handiwork. That natural mottled python skin is lovely, but I feel like I’ve seen it all before. The rounded off, structured shape is classic but also predictable. The purse’s only originality comes, not so coincidentally, from the metal work. This is really where Clara Kasavina shines. The intricate frame and rhinestone encrusted clasp are gorgeous, even overshadowing that luxury skin.
The Suzy purse delivers all those little luxury extras we’d expect. The soft, silk lining has been hand sewn to ensure it stays in place. A tuckaway chain helps this clutch convert from a hand-held purse to a shoulder bag.
I really couldn’t want for more, and if it had come from another designer I might be more enthused. But I find myself craving that romanticism that first drew me to Clara Kasavina’s accessories. It might be made from luxury python skin, but it still feels pedestrian.
