The Ralph Lauren pop-up store in Galeries Lafayette is in for a big surprise, for the windows of the French department store will exhibit Ralph Lauren Ricky XXL bag from March 31-April 12, 2014. The store will also house the new limited version of the Soft Ricky bag, exclusively designed for the occasion.
In 2005, Ralph Lauren designed the colossal Ricky bag along with the supple leather version of the Soft Ricky in honor of his wife. To celebrate the success of iconic accessory, the American designer began a Ricky bag world tour last September, installing a blatantly oversized version of the Ricky in several of the world’s biggest cities, from New York to Tokyo.
The gigantic bag measuring six-feet high and five-feet wide took nearly a month to be created by four craftsmen and is almost 100 times the size of the original model.
While over-sized handbags are like a woman’s security blanket, a reassuring repository of the entire world that a woman likes to carry around on her shoulders, if you wish to carry the enormous Ricky bag, you’d need a truck to tow it around!
Better at least, Ralph Lauren is also offering a new edition of the Soft Ricky in thirteen shades that you can use to stow away all your “can’t-live-without” necessities. The limited edition Soft Ricky bag costing €2,150 (or around $2,965) will be exclusively available in the Ralph Lauren pop-up store in Galeries Lafayette from March 31 for two weeks.
