I am so loving Nina Ricci’s current bag renaissance. My little baby Marche is so cute and perfect for day and night, and it’s quite liberating to being able to pack more than just the basics when going out at night. This shoulder style, which easily converts into an oversized clutch, happens to be just as good.
The pair of neat, symmetrical pleats, both arresting and delicate, has fast become the brand’s signature, and this time, they give this boxy shape the nice, sexy curves it needs to feel special. Similarly, the offbeat edges lend some cool geometry to a practical shoulder bag. But it’s the hardware-filled tubing on the flap, which acts as a weight, that’s genius. With magnetic closure, this is as easy as it gets – it’s automatic! And that wins big points for me. In wear-it-everywhere black or stand-out red calfskin, you can’t go wrong here. Nina Ricci leather clutch on Shopbop for $850.
Pair with: A smart, dapper coat for a super-savvy bag? Yes, please. Thom Browne’s take on tweed is classic with a twist. On My Theresa for $3,610.
