Versace, flower Barocco evening clutch, $1860 SHOP NOW 

Even this 21-centimetre-wide soft lilac clutch embellished with pretty applique leather flowers has a strong side – much like the brilliant, resilient designer herself – thanks to the gold metal chain and Barocco-motif detailing. Tuck the strap in for a conversation-starting clutch or sling on cross-body and you’re ready to rock any festival.
