Nicky Hilton recently attended the NYC screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in a Scandinavian springtime-themed dress from Valentino Spring 2014, and she carried a crimson red Valentino Scarab Finger Clutch from the same collection. (Have you noticed that Nicky Hilton gets an invite to every single NYC movie premiere? I have.) This exact version of Nicky’s clutch is scarce, but you can purchase the black “Gryphon” version for $1,595 at Nordstrom. You can view most of Nicky’s highly covetable bag collection in “The Many Bags of Nicky Hilton.”
In related news, you might notice that some of Coach’s bags from Fall 2014 collection bear some fringe-y similarities to the Valentino Scarab Finger Clutch from Spring 2014. I’m clearly late to the game on this, but it seems fringe is suddenly BACK with a vengeance. Seeing fashion trends from the mid-aughts reappear on the runways always pumps me with both nostalgia and existential dread. I really shouldn’t have these sorts of emotional attachments to fringe.
