Nina Ricci Adele Shopper Tote

Nina Ricci Adele Shopper Tote
Do any of you know who this bag was designed with in mind because I sure don't. I can speculate, though. Some of the possible candidates include Minnie Pearl devotees (no offense to the late grand dame whom I loved) and my best friend's 3 yr old daughter. It would make the most adorable Snow White doll carrier, don't you think? All kidding aside, ladies, I really am scratching my head trying to figure this one out. Even though the Nina Ricci brand has enjoyed a more mature clientele over the years, I can't imagine anyone on their design team felt the Adele Shopper Tote would appeal to older women.

The 'Adele's' ivory canvas exterior is accented with a very sweet eyelet design better suited for a flowing summer dress, not a designer handbag. The tired horseshoe logo is, once again, front and center because they just can't afford for anyone to think this bag was designed by any label other than Nina Ricci. Heaven forbid! So 'Adele', with her canvas body, black leather trim and nauseating detailing, will run you $1300, and that's about $1299.99 too much. To answer my original question, this bag was designed with no one in mind. Taking that into consideration, I'd price it at 1 cent. Even the designers responsible for this dud deserve a penny for their thoughts.
