A new Creative Director means a fresh, new vision for Nina Ricci. Guillaume Henry, the man who revitalized Carven into the covetable brand we now know, was appointed to the French house this past autumn. I, for one, am quite excited for his transformative vision.
I’m not usually one to go gaga over a minaudière, but Nina Ricci’s Ecrin has caught my eye before and in black and white woven grosgrain, it’s truly gone in for the kill.
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.
Yes….more winter white. Or more likely, summer white! Call it whatever you want. All I know is that as soon as I spotted this topstitched woven leather tote, I knew I wanted it. I’m not even sure I can wait for the holidays, so instead of my wish list, this is going straight onto my must-have-right-now list.
Classic elegance never goes out of style, and Nina Ricci’s Ecrin clutch exudes just that. But this piece isn’t as typically timeless as it might seem at first glance. On the contrary, its brand of classicism is modern and distinctive. Best of all, it feels new, so you won’t want to wait on it.
At the end of September, we’re finally starting to feel a fall chill coming, but it’s hardly time to break out the full-length fur. I’m not willing to wait any longer, though, so I’ve found a few smaller pieces to tide us over (faux-enthusiasts, included!).
I love it when all parts on a bag are in perfect harmony, varied elements synthesized into one seamless entity. Designing a bag is not unlike conducting a symphony: an overly heavy-handed cellist will overshadow the violinist, and similarly an overly heavy chunky zipper will overtake a streamlined silhouette.
