I’m travelling at the moment, hence the late posting of this weeks Wants and Wishes. I’ve decided it’s about time for a new everyday handbag, my black Mulberry Evelina satchel is still serving me well but it’s 4 years old now and due to heavy overloading has taken a bit of a bashing. So what to replace it with?
I was eyeing up the Ralph Lauren Ricky bag collection some time ago but didn’t take the plunge. However, I have just discovered that the bag now comes in a drawstring design which is something a little different from what I already have. When Ralph Lauren designed this collection he was inspired by his original muse, his wife Ricky (hence the name), his desire was to create an accessory with a plethora of transformative abilities. I’d say the his design brief is holding up nicely!
The newest addition to the Ricky bag family is of course made in Italy from the softest nappa leather and is lined in a contrasting coloured calf skin. It’s really versatile to wear as it has a removable top handle and a cross body strap, so it can be worn on the arm, shoulder (short or long) and cross body. I really like that the drawstring closing is at the back of the back, keeping the front signature lock detail unobstructed.
It seems I am not the only ginger that’s loving this bag, Jessica Chastain and Julianne Moore, amongst many other celebrities have been spotted carrying it recently.
Well that’s my everyday bag replacement ticked off the list, just got to convince hubs of it’s merits now…….
Peace and Love
