While several “It bags” have been praised and awarded the coveted bag spotlight, only a few are truly functional. A lot of the trendy purses are all too popular and chic but lack the essential features of a great everyday carryall.
Three practical Hollywood beauties, however, have found their perfect carryall — the Ralph Lauren “Ricky” bag.
Emmy Rossum totes a blue Ralph Lauren Ricky bag in West Hollywood in Los Angeles on July 12, 2015
Reinforced with two to three layers of hand-stitched and hand-creased leather, Ricky is one of the brand’s most popular styles, and for good reason. It has a very classic tote silhouette and boasts a roomy interior to fit all your daily essentials.

They have been spotted numerous times carrying the Ricky bag in different colors and sizes. From bright summer hues to neutrals and even exotic prints, this functional tote is for anyone.

Named after Ricky Lauren, the wife of fashion designer Ralph Lauren, each bag is made in Italy where two artisans spend up to 12 hours constructing it by hand.
They cut and assemble around 50 separate pieces of calfskin before affixing nine individual pieces of brass hardware.
When Ralph Lauren designed the handbag dedicated to his wife Ricky Lauren, he intended for every woman who carries it to feel so at home in the world
“My wife Ricky is my muse. Her personal style and natural beauty have always been my inspiration,” Ralph tweeted about his wife in December 2003.
