I just got an email from Harvey Nichols saying that they are the exclusive stockists of the Lana Marks, Cleopatra Clutch that Chloe Sevigny wore to the Emmy awards last weekend. It’s an utterly beautiful, highly coveted piece of arm candy that was apparently inspired by Elizabeth Taylor. This one has been especially modified for Chloe, her snake-skin version has “a detachable silver shoulder strap to match the bags silver hardware”.
She has worn it at a number of events and has one in alligator skin too by all accounts. But it was the quote that came with the email that really got me thinking because it shows an insight into how she is so painfully stylish. During an interview with Marie Claire magazine she said of her clutch,
“Too many bags flaunt huge labels. I prefer a more discreet look.”
Good grief, she’s so right.
The Cleopatra clutch is available from Harvey Nichols for a Wa-hopping £5,400. (yup, that’s pounds sterling). If anyone does buy one, do let me have a lend of it won’t you!
