In Greek mythology, a nymph is a minor goddess. They are typically associated with a land form (e.g. woods, river, etc), but can also be part of the retinue of a god. An interesting tidbit, but I am not exactly sure what it has to do with the Valentino Nymphe Garden Tote you see pictured here.
A crazy gorgeous piece, the tote features a rather dramatic display of silk blooms. I love how the cream and blush flowers at the top fade to gray and then black as they make their way toward the bottom. The flowers are simple and relaxed, not packed together and stuffy like other flower-filled bags.
But would I consider this a garden, let alone a nymph garden? Perhaps not. But I think the soft, floaty feeling you get from this bag pays tribute to the young maidens. It is romantic and free, like a watercolor painting. Definitely a nymph-worthy piece! That is about as far as I’m going to go with trying to make a connection though. After all, this lovely piece has an aura all its own that is sure to draw just about any bagista in for closer look! But hey, who doesn’t want to feel like a goddess?
