Arm Candy Fancy Complete your holiday outfits with clutches from Verushkha and Kotur.

An outfit wouldn’t be complete without the perfect bag to match. If you can’t seem to find that It clutch for that big party you’re attending, no need to fret: We’ve found two brands to tickle that festive fancy: Verushkha by Verushkha Go and Kotur by Fiona Kotur.

Made for the modern day goddess, Verushkha offers statement clutches that are delicately handcrafted and produced in limited quantities. This season, she releases two new designs under her Sauvage Collection: Feline Fatale and Vipere. The former features a front-handle style clutch accented with a bejeweled antique-finished lion doorknocker that depicts royalty, strength, and courage. The latter has an intricately hand-sculpted snake with bejeweled eyes set against leather and exotic skin (Ed's note: The Vipere on New Year’s Eve is perfect2013 is the year of the snake!). Both designs come in the season’s hottest hues as well.

Kotur is named after New York-based designer Fiona Kotur. Her clutches were inspired by a trip to Hong Kong where she met a 90-year old brocade craftsman. Fascinated by his vintage pieces, she came up with the idea of mixing modern techniques with traditional craftsmanship. Eight years later, the brand has made appearances in magazines like Lucky and Cosmopolitan and in TV shows such as Gossip Girl and Lipstick Jungle, not to mention a growing celebrity following led by style doyen Andre Leon Talley. This year's holiday collection consists of party-ready clutches and minaudierès embellished with sequins, feathers, and jewels in festive hues.

Take your pick from the gallery and bring every cocktail celebration to the next level with some posh carriers.
