Frilly? Yes. Adorable? Definitely yes. Designer wunderkind Simone Rocha realizes a little bit of ruffle goes a long way, and this detailing travels the right amount of distance. This otherwise too-serious frame tote has received a great yet measured dose of whimsy, thanks to the delicately scalloped trim, without losing its sense of classic chic.
Classic chic with a (second) twist, to be more specific: the bag’s shape is a light hexagon, bringing a modern touch to the equation. The result is refined romance. While I happen to like the nude leather, this particular bag looks so much better in black; it feels sharper and cleaner. And if you’re in the mood for something fully fanciful, the marabou-trimmed version is crazy-amazing – and strangely comes with a much gentler price tag. Simone Rocha bag available in nude or black on Farfetch for $2,259.44.
Pair with: Keep your look sleek, not cluttered, with the help of Jason Wu’s suede wrap skirt, crisp with a sexy, high slit for an element of surprise. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,995.
