OP Must Have: Benedetta Bruzziches Clutches

There’s something both whimsical and yet incredibly practical about Benedetta Bruzziches‘ art-like clutches. On the one hand, the bags are quite literally pieces of art to be held. Limited edition and hand made in Italy, each bag in the designer’s namesake collection is individually numbered.

On the other hand, in a summer of paired down dressing, where simplicity is queen and 90’s minimalism its king, it seems almost necessary to have that one special piece that can effortlessly pull together even the most frequented basics in your wardrobe.

Enter Bruzziches, who grew up in Caparorla, Italy, learning harvesting and planting from her father, a farmer. Launching her line in 2010, her inspiration from nature and passion for her culture translate through her designs – from the imaginative to refined.

Using the finest materials, from embellished silk to brass, her collection of clutches to cross bodies are available at Luisa Via Roma, Yoox, Moda Operandi, as well as bespoke creations.
