More famous for their fragrances than RTW and bags, Nina Ricci is one of those brands I remember growing up, though I can’t really recall why. And while their RTW has been enjoying some success of late, it is the bags I’m keeping an eye on, and this new season addition ain’t half bad at all.
Measuring 19.5 cm across by 13 cm in height, the Folded Case Leather Clutch is lined with suede, as are the sides, giving the otherwise plain clutch a bit of contrast. Also interesting is the folded inverted ‘arrow’ leather tab on the front, with a gold-tone metal bar discreetly etched with the brand’s name on the side.
Priced at USD1035 via Barneys, I wouldn’t say this is something you have to buy. But for those feeling all nostalgic, this could be something different you could have in your wardrobe. And for something a tad more functional, check out the Folded Case Leather Shoulder that you can pick up from Net-A-Porter in 2 colours (in Black or Pale Pink) for around the same price after conversion. And it’s prettier too. What with the leather sling and all.
