Devi Kroell Metallic Sliced Leather Envelope via @bagsnob
is one of the most innovative and cutting-edge designers around. Her now-established “classic” couldn’t look more revolutionary. That’s because it is. Devi’s fascinating sliced leather technique has already been copied by big-name designers (Marni’s sliced leather tote, anyone?!). Dax Gabler’s envelope clutch is so dynamic and organic, it has the feel of mixed-metal sculpture, but this statement-maker is composed of sliced metallic leather and trimmed with an exuberant chain of resin “icicles.” The handle can be unclipped, and while this is irresistible for evening, at 11″ by 8″, who’s to say you can’t showcase this cut-up knockout when the sun is shining? Trust me, you’ll be craving seconds of this slice.
