Vogue is calling it the ‘It’ bag of the season.

Remember the tiny circular handbag that Miroslava Duma, founder of the fashion website Buro247, carried with her during New York Fashion Week 2016? And the bag Academy Award winner, Brie Larson, paired with a Céline outfit at a pre–Golden Globes party? This bag, called The Nina, is designed by Gabriela Hearst and has a waitlist of over 100 names. Vogue is calling it the ‘It’ bag of the season. Made from calf-leather, Nina bag comes in five colours – black, cognac, navy, nude and bordeaux. Its exclusivity comes from the fact that you cannot pick it off a shelf or buy it online, you must email the designer if you really want the bag … and then wait.

Born in Uruguay, Gabriela Hearst launched her eponymous label in Fall 2015 to create a brand where things are made with care and detail, and there is a purpose to every piece. Since the Nina bag is out of reach for now, we explore the designer’s website to check out some of her other cool apparel and accessories. Here are our five favourites:


1. Miles pump: This Mary-Jane shoe style can easily become your new workwear staple.

2. Embroidered fringe skirt: Vertical striped and fringed skirt seen on Brie Larson and Miroslava Duma. Need we say more?

3. Federico cape: Made from canvas, this can become your go-to lightweight rainwear.

4. Ida blouse:A quirky take on the classic white shirt with a back button placket.

5. Long-sleeved ribbed dress: Emma Watson showed us how to make an effortless statement, when she paired this dress with a camel-colour coat.


IFM Verdict | What makes Gabriela Hearst’s products click? They are basic designs that go on to become fashion phenomenon because of their timelessness and exclusivity. Whether a dress or handbag, they make for a great luxury buy.
