My childhood dream of being a ballerina was never fulfilled for a couple of reasons: A) I never possessed the patience to actually attend lessons, and B) I only wanted to be a ballerina because I liked the tutus. Fair enough. While arabesques and pliés were not meant for me, thanks to Nina Ricci, I may still become a ballerina yet!
Inspired by the simple and functional dance bags used by real ballerinas when they’re toting their leotards and toe shoes from street to studio, the Ballet bag captures all the grace and elegance worthy of a seasoned danseuse. With subtly curved details and slim, elongated straps, it’s soft yet sleek and as lithe can be. It also comes in every incarnation imaginable. Pay homage to the classic costume with supple deerskin in feminine ballet pink, go for timeless and enduring with black cervo leather, get ready for winter with fleecy wool and felt tweed wool and felt, or go bold with my favorite: cheeky curly lamb for a surprising twist. Who needs the moves when you have the bag to win over any ballet-loving audience?
