Clara Kasavina is known for her fine handbags, clutches and jewelry. These are pieces that you reserve for that extra special occasion. Stars like Kendra Wilkinson, Joan Collins and Jamie Lynn Sigler have been seen strutting their stuff with her decadent pieces on their arms. I met up with the designer, Clara Kasavina, to get to know the collection.
The Clara Kasavina line includes rings, cuffs, necklaces, clutches and handbags. Clara gets her inspiration from vintage pieces but loves to incorporate newer trends into classical silhouettes. Her husband is a sculptor and they often collaborate on her collections, which are all hand-sculpted. For instance, there was a structural black bag with extended edges and liberal chain and jeweled detailing. The material looked like alligator skin and the inconsistency of the texture added to its almost wild spirit. Most of the clutches were heavily jeweled, with the smooth exterior of the jewels juxtaposing with the rugged leather of the bags.
One of my favorite pieces from her collection is a silver cuff that looks like vines interwoven together, running across the wrist. It has a natural element but is sophisticated and simple. I also loved the hard shell clutches that were layered with fabric on the inside.
