Flipping through Women’s Wear Daily on Thursday, June 28th, an unusual accessory caught my eye.  A sloping, varnished wood Lanvin clutch, topped with a mint green enamel clasp, stood out amongst all the surrounding colorful, embellished Resort 2013 accessories.  I was so struck by its unique and quiet, earthy beauty, I thought, there must be more like it!  (Although some may like to think so, designers do not create in a vacuum.)

Of course we are all familiar with the classic wooden-handled canvas clutch that accompanies our summer outfits on occasion, but this is a new breed of wooden clutches.  The wood stands alone; requiring no assistance from textiles in structure or in adornment.  The result is a sleek and fresh clutch with vintage appeal, ready for any occasion.

Here are a few more wood clutches I have stumbled upon (click for purchasing information)–I may have to start a collection of my own:

So pretty and delicate, I would love to see this Stella McCartney clutch with an outfit that compliments it (a white sun dress), as well as one that contrasts it (a motorcycle jacket and skinnies.)

The mixed materials of varying depths on the faces of this Pucci clutch and the exposed screws on the sides give it an unfinished, rustic quality, despite its modern design.

I appreciate the vintage appeal of the Rachana Reddy piece and how it looks as if it is wearing a studded cuff.  Minimal jewelry needed with this one.

This KAYU clutch is an absolute stunner and my favorite of the bunch for its unusual use of natural materials.

If you are unable to count carpentry as one of your skills, this one is a financially feasible alternative to trying to DIY your own clutch.

This is not a clutch by any means, but it popped up in my search and I could not resist including it in this post.  For the non-clutch-carryers out there: a little timber for you, too.

I do not think I will ever look at a small wooden box the same way again . . .

Much love and good shoes,
