Finally, there is a bag to break up the monotony of dainty satin clutches: the Anya Hindmarch “Metal Crisp Packet Clutch.” With its crumpled design and shiny metallic finish, one might mistake the edgy handbag for a Pop-Tarts wrapper. Even with its quirky aesthetic, stylish celebs including Kerry Washington, Lily James, and Rosamund Pike have propelled this unique accessory straight to It-bag status.

Priced at a hefty $1,595, the clutch features a metal shell, a soft suede inner lining, and a detachable shoulder strap, giving it dress-up or dress-down versatility. 

Washington, 38, carried the statement piece to the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards on March 21, in Beverly Hills. The Scandal star gave her two-toned purple Hellessy gown some edge via the bag’s flashy detail.
