Hi Everyone, I am trying to decide between two stretch knot clutches, both are black, priced @$1650. The first is the satin, trimmed in ayers snake. The other is the textured silk. I want to be able to get as much use as possible, i.e. dress up or dress down (formal events, as well as cocktails in jeans and leather jacket). Which do you think is the better option? Thank you for your help!
Between the two, if it were me and I liked both equally, I'd probably go with the textured silk if I were certain that I would be using it for both formal and casual events. The textured silk might be more forgiving in terms of hiding little snags (like from a rough fingernail or jewelry edge, etc.) than the smooth satin.
Then again, in black, the dark color alone will probably hide most snags well enough, too. So if I liked that one a lot better, I might pick that one.
I have the textured silk (kind of looks like grosgrain) with ayers trim..you can dress it up or down..and I think the texture is more forgiving in terms of hiding imperfections or mishaps

prestwick, I have not seen that version. Is it available through the BV boutiques?
I'm not prestwick, but I think she was describing the silk faille Stretch Knot with Ayers trim. That's the one that I had in my reply to you, too.
I have no idea if it's still available through the boutiques or online (I haven't checked), because although the silk faille was from a few seasons ago, the boutiques tend to keep them until they're sold, regardless of season (that's my understanding, anyway).
Which "textured silk" Knot is the one that you have in mind?
Hi, yes I was referring to the silk faiile stretch knot in Nero. I know it was produced in other colors. I remember trying to choose between it and the gorgiera stretch knot, which appears to be more shiny, almost patent looking with a ruffle type pattern. But I like the simplicity of the one I chose. I would google it. You never know what you may find. And I do believe that the bag was not exclusive to the BV boutiques.
