Serpui Marie’s handcrafted handbags are inspired by the tropical gardens that surrounded her during her childhood in Brazil. Although I have never heard of this designer, her inspiration clearly shows in her creations. I love the mix of bold colors and natural elements. Apparently, I am not the only one who feels this way. Celebrities such as Madonna and Jennifer Aniston have been spotted sporting Serpui Marie pieces. What I particularly love though is the Serpui Marie Marrakech Minaudiere! The second I saw it, all I could think was “wow”.
This piece is absolutely stunning. From a distance, it looks like the exterior is a dip dyed fabric. However, the exterior is not fabric at all! Those bright colors you see fading into one another are actually an illusion created by a tiny straw weave. The straw strands are round, almost wicker-like in appearance. I also love the kiss lock clasp. If you look closely, you will see they are asymmetrically shaped pyramids composed of blush colored shell. Topping off the look though is my favorite feature — a full and flirty removable tassel. This clutch could definitely stand on it’s own without it. But having the tassel on there really pushes this tiny clutch into statement piece territory!
