Bursting with a vast palette of colors, skins, and motifs, Nancy Gonzalez’s latest Resort collection puts most others to shame. But what makes me most excited is the prospect of hopping on her mini-bag train, a la the Cristina and two new bag shapes. Beautiful as they are, never forget that when it comes to Nancy, function and form unite. These may be small, but they are full of practicality. All three come with removable shoulder straps because Nancy knows we need our hands free to multi-task.
The cherry-red double-flap bag is my absolute favorite of the season (it’s yet to be named, so I am casting my vote to call it the “Tina” bag). It has a whopping five compartments, and at 8” wide, it’s not exactly tiny (that’s a good thing!). Yellow is THE color to have for Resort. I’ve been on a yellow kick for months now, and this new Cristina means I won’t be slowing down. Last but not least, the mini-doctor bag of cobalt blue with softly structured silhouette, ideal for showing off buttery crocodile skin.
This trio is just the beginning: I have many more Resort 2014 pieces from Nancy Gonzalez to share with you later. Consider this a teaser to get you through the holiday weekend. If you ask me, nothing says “independence” like an easy yet luxurious little bag that lets you stay on the move!
