Classy in Purple

When I was younger, Nina Ricci used to be one of the “IT” brands, along with Ferragamo and Aigner. Like its counterparts of yesteryear, it is now one of the brands that have seemingly fallen under the fashion radar. Nonetheless, while browsing online, I chanced upon this beauty – I didn’t even realise it was Nina Ricci, or if that any stores (online) were currently carrying the brand – but all I knew that it was stunning, and so feminine. This embroidered clutch with horseshoe detail also comes in black suede, but, knowing me, I was drawn to this purple one (also in suede) instead. I just love the embroidered detailing and the magnetic snap closure that sets this clutch apart from your regular clutch bags that have foldover and kiss-lock closures. LOVE LOVE LOVE the concave-like closure on this Nina Ricci number! This understated yet pretty clutch is available via Barneys for $1,250.
