From that baby-sized bright pink plastic duffle with the pointe shoes embroidered on the front to the stinky, ratty old sack you drag your warm-ups to rehearsal in, the ballet bag is a staple in every dancer’s life. This is why when I found out about Nina Ricci’s new line of ballet-inspired leather totes, I knew I had to post about it. I admit it has taken me a little while, buuuut voila! I now present to you the magnificent collection of Nina Ricci “ballet bags”:
Glorious, aren’t they? I’m totally coveting the soft pink one. And I know it’s obvious, given their title and inspiration, but these things just scream sophisticated ballerina on her way to the theater to me. There’s just something about the thin handles and long, sensual lines…j’adore. Spot on, Nina Ricci. You nailed it.
