If you didn’t already love Nancy Gonzalez, you will after reading this. When her daughter Cristina asked the designer to create a bag for her hectic life as a mother and businesswoman, Nancy immediately went to work. The resulting bag is functional and chic with a detachable shoulder strap for days when you need both hands free (for me, that’s every day!). I love the bevy of compartments to stay organized- especially the secure zippered one for valuables. So great as a diaper bag, which is what Cristina used it for as well (ah to be so lucky to have a bag genie as your mother to grant all your bag wishes). This gorgeous royal blue in medium size is my top pick, but there are options in many hues and four different sizes (prices range from $2,400-$4,100). The Cristina bag has become a signature style for Nancy, we’ll see even more colors and exotics each season. Available on NET-A-PORTER for $3,750.
If you’d like to meet the inspiration for yourself, drop into Bergdorf’s today – Cristina and her brother Santiago will be there from 1-5 pm!
