Schiaparelli Couture dress; Benedetta Bruzziches clutch.

As we enter May and now the third month of staying home, we've all had time to reflect on the little things that bring us joy. Though it may be a moment until we're all reunited, there are tons of ways to amp up the effect of virtual parties through a little zhuzh. Enter Benedetta Bruzziches's Ariel Fluo clutch. The must-have accessory is crafted using innovative, 100% recyclable plexiglass, and each is handmade with distinct, inlaid layers to create a groovy finish. Benedetta Bruzziches's artisans cut and carve each bag using 3D technology, which marries old-world techniques with modern practices. The resulting piece is then lined in silk and individually numbered, signifying its one-of-a-kind status.

Olivia first discovered the label while on a trip during Milan Fashion Week and immediately fell in love with the brand's aesthetic and innovation. "When I saw Benedetta's pieces, it reminded me of the lucite bags my mom and Aunt Linda would wear in the '60s and '70s but made for today," says Olivia. "I love that each one is handmade and therefore unique and that little bit more special."
