If you are a serious follower of fashion news, then you know The Metropolitan Museum’s Anna Wintour Costume Center is set to focus on Chinese fashion aesthetics that have influenced Western styles over time. Naturally, the Met Gala celebration last night was filled with celebrities adventurously dressing to fit the exhibition theme.
While some opted for neutrality, others left press and attendees speechless such as Rihanna with her majestic Guo Pei piece and Sarah Jessica Parker’s very avant garde headdress.
Though eye-catching, these pieces aren’t the most easily wearable options, so we found a way for fashion lovers to get into the Met Gala mood with these Chinese inspired designs. Simple and more subtle than the heavily ornate gowns of the celebrities above, these clutches are workable with your favorite street styles and great for adding a quick statement for a fun night out.
These flap clutches are completely handcrafted and signed by the artist. You can find them available here for $185 and $195!
If you are into the Chinese zodiac symbolism, seek out Charlotte Olympia’s Pandora Clutches. We adored the enamel horse of this design available here for $834.
Looking for something quick for a one-time event? You can rent this Kate Spade Hello Shanghai Milan fan clutch here for only $45!
