Accessories like this Bottega Veneta fringe clutch make me miss the subway. Not that the kind of person who owns a $4,500 handbag would necessarily choose to commute underground, but imagine what it would be like to wedge yourself into a stuffed car, tassels flying everywhere and maybe getting caught in the door. Just think of the looks you would get! What a fun fashion stunt. Actually, maybe that’s what I miss: fashion stunts. And this bag certainly falls into that category. It’s an absurdist take on Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato, or woven leather, that looks as though it exploded in the making. Come to think of it, you could probably fashion a whole other bag with all that leftover material.
