If there’s one thing I enjoy about Valentino, it’s how they took the humble stud and turned it into one of the brand’s most recognisable icons. Right beside delicate lace and hip camouflage, which while seemingly sit on opposite ends of the fashion spectrum, somehow work beautifully at the house.
Take the Valentino Rockstud Noir Top Handle Bag for example, a new addition to the
French Italian house that’s from the F/W13 collection. Starkly simple in its shape, the 34 cm by 26 cm full leather tote features a dual-compartment interior that can be secured with the latch-hook closure found on the top of the bag.
The icing on the cake has got to be the singular row of ruthenium studs that run around the edges of the bag, with a sprinkling more on the leather sling that’s also removable and allows you to turn the bag into a large, oversized clutch. Versatile, and beautiful. Now that’s what I call a lady with brains and brawn.
