Ralph Lauren is often called the king of All-American style so it’s no surprise that he occasionally looks to symbols of Americana like the Star Spangled banner for inspiration. The designer’s American Flag Ricky Bag is a distressed take on the classic stars and stripes design and features a snakeskin trim, patchwork details, and the shabby chic look that some fashionistas absolutely love.
The bag is made from cotton canvas which is contrasted by blue snakeskin trim on the handles, flap, and corners. The bag features a folded top with a slide-lock clasp and belted closures. On the inside, you can find a twill lining as well as zip and slip pockets. A detachable cross-body strap and gold-tone hardware complete the look. The bag is made in Italy.
As tempted as you may be to pair this bag with your favorite red white and blue outfit, you want to keep the look chic but not costume-y. Wear the bag crossbody with casual jeans and white shirt ensemble, or use it spice up your fall sweater-and-leggings uniform. The flag inspired design may be a summer staple, but with election season upon us, there’s no better time to show some love to the flag!
The bag is priced at $2950 and is exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman as it was designed in celebration of their new main floor.
