WHAT: Nathalie Trad Murray Mother of Pearl Shell Clutch
WHY: Not only is this clutch the perfect accessory for a summer night out East or anywhere, it also has the potential to double as décor. Nathalie Trad, who trained in accessories design at Proenza Schouler, has become well-known for creating bags from genuine stone, and the Murray clutch from the Spring/Summer ’16 South Beach Boulevard collection is no exception—it’s made mostly of mother of pearl with brass accents. Each piece was inspired by Miami’s Art Deco district in South Beach, and Murray clutch’s architecture gives a nod to the facade of many of the neighborhood’s buildings.
