DKNY Black Haircalf Clutch DKNY Black Haircalf Clutch

DKNY Black Haircalf Clutch in Black

The DKNY Black Haircalf Clutch is a smooth nappa leather clutch with a flap over top which has a haircalf insert. The bag has a silver tone clasp inlaid with tortoiseshell and fastens with a hidden magnetic fastening. The clutch comes with a removable silver tone chain shoulder strap. Inside, the bag is fully lined in black in DKNY logo print fabric and it has three separate compartments. The bag also has a zip pocket, a slip pocket and a circular metal brand logo.

Material: leather

Measurements: 25cm / 9.8″ x 27cm / 10.6″ x 6cm / 2.4″ (all measurements are approximate)

I love the separate compartments in this bag, and it’s nice for what is essentially an evening bag to be so well organised. You could definitely use it during the day if you don’t have too much to carry and the haircalf and leather exterior combined with silver tone and tortoiseshell clasp give the bag a look of luxury. It is certainly sufficiently opulent to tick all the boxes for the current season’s required decadence.
