When Valentino executes excess, it’s always elevated, and it always exudes the highest level of craftsmanship (just take a peek at the short video below to see what I mean). An exotic, hand-touched mood has struck for spring, and it’s materialized in the form of intricate laser-cut details and a well-traveled tribal motif. I have to say the house has outdone itself. These embellishments are designed to transfix, like hand-painted panels topped with cabochon stones, as seen on the My Rockstud tote, and leather embroidered in a subdued rainbow of infinite beads and rhinestones, featured on the embellished Lock crossbody.
The result: bags that are for a feast for the eyes – and a treat for your hands. Antique gold hardware prevents any hint of overt flashiness. Although, there’s no doubt these collector-worthy pieces won’t garner plenty of attention, not to mention envy. My Rockstud single handle bag and the embellished Lock small chain crossbody are currently available at Valentino. The collection ranges from $3,895-$5,475.
