A black clutch is definitely among the most important things in our wardrobe – whenever an outfit needs to make an impact, you know a simple black bag won’t detract; it’s a failsafe, after all.

But nothing useful need ever be boring, and we’ve found the ultimate black clutch in Alexander McQueen’s faithful pochette design. The zip detail, along with the mix of textures, makes a staple piece just that tad more racy – and the boxy shape will hold all of our essentials, too. We want to wear it alongside the most feminine of dresses to toughen up evening looks.
