Hooked: Maison Martin Margiela
Candy is dandy but a Margiela bag is better. The crafty minds at MMM have indulged their sweet tooth with a clutch that’s straight out of grandma’s candy dish. The oversized metallic bag, which comes in gold, silver or fuchsia, might look like a yummy confection (complete with stamped bar code), but it’s officially taking over as the summer’s top accessory—for those with a sense of humor, that is. It may only hold the bare necessities, but it manages the Herculean feat of tying an outfit together. Time to leave your old pyramid-studded clutch on the closet shelf; this is a far more appetizing option. $975 at Maison Martin Margiela stores in New York, Beverly Hills and Miami.
