Fashion is a complicated topic, for sure. It sits at the intersection of art and commerce, of high and low culture, of aesthetic and functional design. Sometimes, though, when something is beautiful enough, fashion feels incredibly simple; it’s just about owning something beautiful. That’s what it felt like when I first set eyes on the Ralph Lauren Alligator Soft Ricky Bags.

Handbag lovers are all well familiar with the Birkin-reminiscent Ricky by now, as well as with all kinds of exotics, but something about these bags stands out. Perhaps its the color choices, which are all soft, powdery pastels that give the alligator an almost porcelain quality. Its an extra element of delicacy to an already fragile material, and it’s easy to get the idea of the kind of women who would potentially carry one of these. Suffice it to say that her life probably doesn’t suck.
