You may recall that back in July, Señora Cartera profiled the debut of the Nina Ricci Ondine bag--a basic U shaped bag with chain and leather strap, notable for its ribbon-wrapped horseshoe and the fact that Rhianna was seen carrying it everywhere. Seems Nina Ricci is intent on staying in the limelight and put an ultra girlie pastel ruffle and bow spin on their 2010 Spring line.
I like the fact that Nina Ricci had its own take on the major bag trends for spring: the soon to be ubiquitous chain handle, the embellished body, and the big and small clutch. While there were roses at Valentino and Marchesa, the petal ruffles and pretty fabrications from Nina Ricci felt the most refreshing to me.
More good news: the general consensus is that people are tired of carting around bags that weigh more than a small sack of potatoes, as evidenced by the racks and racks of gold hardware laden Marc Jacobs bags marked down at Neiman Marcus Last Call stores across the country. Ladies, prepare to pare down your purses and get ready for some frilly light action!
