Valentino Bow Clutch

Poor Minnie Mouse, her bow was stolen to make this clutch. And what a shame too because it is a sad excuse for a clutch at that. Other than looking like a ridiculous cartoon character, how the heck do you use this thing? Unless you just need to carry scarves with you, what can you possibly fit in there that can crumple in half like that? To make matters worse, I don’t think the center of the bow unravels so you have to get the zipper to unzip under it. And if you think there is some saving grace to this bag, there is not – to add insult to injury, this comes with a shoulder strap so you can really look like a 3 year old with a toy but you pay full adult price at $1095. I truly cannot believe this has a Valentino label on it, it is not only ill-conceived, it is poorly made. It looks like the result of fidgety hands while on a shrinks couch. At Neiman Marcus.

    I don’t like any of Valentino’s handbags,this is one field in which this house fails miserably,I’ll say just stick to making fab clothes

    I think my daughter would get a kick out of that purse, but for $1095, no kicking for her!

    I couldn’t stop myself from laughing. I think my 5 year old niece will love this bag but @ close to $1100, it is quite an expensive gag gift. What are they thinking at Valentino? I am thinking they want to test how far they can go before brand loyal clients turn their backs on the brand.

    Call me crazy, but I actually like it. Its the signature Valentino red and the bow is a nod to the one that’s been seen on his bags and dresses. Cute.

    i think the only dress it will go with is a red Valentino couture gown. i have difficulty thinking where else this can be used in real life.

    honestly, i would buy this bag. i might wear it with a little black dress. then again, i’m only 18, and if i were a little older i would probably find it too immature.

    In my opinion, it is like Minnie Mouse couture!

    Ah, how it would be amusing to see an old lady walking around a mall wearing a sweatshirt with Minnie mouse dressed in a red Valentino gown.

    That makes me giggle thinking about it.

    I think that is just ADORABLE! Certainly an attention getter at the very least.
