Not only has Nina Ricci improved their bag collection by leaps and bounds, it’s now up there in my esteemed clique of favorites! An easy tote that’s not all in-your-face but has just the right amount of subtle detail to make it stand out with personality and style. Carry something like this, and so will you.
Like the special attention given to the handles: ruched and stitched, while the tassels aren’t so much tassels as they are ribbons – way better than the typical, done-to-death tassel detail. On the practical end, there is a detachable zipper pouch inside and you can close up the big, soft tote with secure lobster claw clasps. Most of all, I love, love, love the tones – and black with navy-blue trim. (You know that pairing always gets me.) Relaxed and easy-going this is total Hollywood-celeb, laid-back chic. On Net-a-Porter for $990.
Pair with: Do as the off-duty starlets do and opt for a simplistic, patterned maxi dress (with an approachable frugal snob price). DAY Birger et Mikkelsen striped jersey has no fuss and good flow at the hem. On Net-a-Porter for $130.
