Fantastic Floral Collaboration: Ten Over Six and Of A Kind's Flora Clutch!

The modernist side of the Flora Clutch bag
I'll be honest here about the floral trend for spring: I'm generally against it. Florals evoke, at least for me, saccharine Mario Buatta interiors lashed with clashing chintz. The florals I've seen for spring are appearing on skin tight jeans, for instance, proving that if there's one truly bad fashion idea, you may as well double it up and see who buys it.

So, while you won't be seeing the likes of the Toad in flowery skinnies, there is still a place for spring flowers. Two of my favorite style entities, Ten Over Six and Of A Kind, have collaborated here on a great, very limited edition clutch bag. Notice the judiciously restrained use of the floral pattern at work on this bag; one whole side of it is buttery soft neutral leather, with just a hint of the garden peaking out the top. The genius of this bag is that, if for some reason you really want more flowers, you can just turn it around. These wise touches from Ten Over Six are typical of what the brand does best: making modern and practical the luxurious, but at a decent price point.

How decent? Well, there's only 20 of this bag for $170. It's a roomy clutch for lunch and beyond (would probably hold an iPad, too). And you're guaranteed not to have copycat camellias when you brandish it about town. At Of A Kind, but hurry before they're gone!

I can't do floral pants, but I can definitely carry this!
