Ralph Lauren has been redefining American luxury since its 1967 debut, and this season the brand continues to do so by introducing a new timeless accessory: the ‘Ricky Drawstring’ bag. Following the success of the ‘Ricky Bag’, this latest must-have comes in the form of a plush bucket bag available in various shades of luxe Nappa, alligator, and python leathers and in three convenient sizes.
To celebrate the launch of the bag, Savoir Flair tapped five regional influencers and asked them to choose and style their favorite version of the new ‘Ricky Drawstring’. Elissa Freiha, co-founder of angel investment group Womena; Doha-based banker Dalia Nsouli; student and writer Juline Karadag; strategy consultant Ola Farahat; and Alamira Noor Bani Hashim, co-founder of The Dinner Club by No.57 and No.FiftySeven Boutique Café were shot around Dubai carrying the must-have bag.
Known for her inimitable style, Nsouli paired her ‘Ricky Drawstring’ with a bright-orange dress from the label’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. “I love this bag, especially the mini version; it’s a classy take on a closet staple,” she explains. “It’s easy to wear and versatile enough to dress up or down.” Sporting a Ralph Lauren jumpsuit, Karadag says that, for her, the covetable accessory “ticks all the boxes of a perfect, everyday bag,” which given her busy schedule helps keep all of her essentials together. Emirati entrepreneur Bani Hashim favors the biggest size, explaining, “I like that it has that backpack feel to it,” which suits her cool, laid-back style.
The Ralph Lauren ‘Ricky Drawstring’ bag is available at The Dubai Mall and via www.RalphLauren.com.
