The Frill of It All: Nina Ricci Spring 2010

Hello everyone! Quickly, I wanted to say how happy I am to be here as Señora Cartera has always been my favorite handbag site! As a handbag designer, part of my job is to be hyper-aware of emerging trends, styles with staying power, celeb bag sightings and more, but sadly I never seem to get around to talking about one of my greatest passions over at my blog, Suffice to say, I'm thrilled to now have a place to luxuriate, ruminate, and just plain obsess about handbags. So let's get to it!

Nina Ricci Spring 2010

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!

    I wasn't a fan of the 'Ondine' line, but there are a few particulars from this spring collection that I find appealing. The fold-over clutches/shoulder bags have very modern closures which is exactly the way to go when dealing with such feminine designs.

    Great 1st post, Mary Jo. Thanks.

    Mary Jo, welcome to SenoraCartera and I look forward to your future posts. You couldn't have joined a better handbag blog. Dania is the best. Not only is her commentary and advice about handbags spot on, she is extremely generous with her time and expertise to answer her blogger's questions and need for advice when it comes to a handbag purchase.
