The Monika Chiang Raja Clutch, $695, has been popping up all over New York, on both the small screen and in real life. Above, Leighton Meester wore the clutch on Gossip Girl as Blair when departing for her sham honeymoon with Prince Louis.


Then this week the bag was spotted on style blogger Hanneli Mustaparta at Lincoln Center for New York Fashion Week. The bag is crafted of a unique whipstitched leather - chevron lacing over a reptile-embossed leather body. Even though the shape is very traditional, the fun texture and hardware make it a little more modern.
