Pictured: Rauwolf Elletra minaudière.

The best evening bag possesses a kind of transformative power—pulling together a look in one stylish fell swoop. But there’s more than just functionality at stake. Choosing a clutch (or minaudière or pochette or slinky shoulder bag) is a chance to have some fun with fashion. A gold-studded statement? Why not? Bordeaux-soaked ostrich? We’re all about it.
