A brass bag sounds like a heavy hindrance, yet thanks to a little perforation, Reece Hudson’s evening clutch will keep you moving around at warp speed all night long. Perforated bags took back the night and the day this year with a trend that will be holding strong all the way through to the new year and beyond. To take part in the festivities, pick up Reece’s Stendhal minaudière (at Reece Hudson for $11,95) in winter white or warm amethyst – both lovely holiday colors. Consider it an early gift to yourself!
Chloé Baylee Medium Perforated Satchel: While the Chloé woman is certainly ladylike, she is not timid. If you look hard enough, you can see inside her bag, but she’s not going to make it easy. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $2,900.
Saint Laurent Oversized Perforated Metallic Muse: A classic Saint Laurent gets a trendy update! Don’t fret, though – perforation this tiny is really less trendy and more on-trend. On Luisa via Roma for $2,550.
Rebecca Minkoff Perforated Mini M.A.C. Convertible Clutch: As if the bright hardware and dangling, moto-style leather strips weren’t enough, Rebecca adds a pop of perforation to her Frugal Snob favorite bag. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $195.
Marc Jacobs Perforated Flat Zip Pouch: Marc mixes colors and leathers (suede with smooth) for a take on perforation that’s shy about revealing too much but not at all shy about grabbing attention. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $525.
Chloé Allison Small Perforated East-West Tote Bag: One of the hardest bags to find is a neutral that you won’t tire of. Even in nude and black, show-off Alison will always have you caught up in lust. If only we didn’t have to wait until March to have her! Pre-order at Neiman Marcus for $2,250.
