Valentino Rockstud Double Handle Bag

valentino_rockstud-double-handle-bagWhenever I’m at the airport, I have loads of time on my hands, especially once my errands (change-money-check-out-bookstore-shop-at-Hermès) are done. Then I’ll do my next favourite thing, people watching, or more specifically, watching the kinds of bags people are carrying as they make their way to their flights. And one bag I’ve been seeing loads of lately is the Valentino Rockstud Double Handle Bag, with the one in the smallest size (but of course, right?) being the most common.

Valentino’s take on the bag-with-wings style that’s still all the rage now, the 23 cm by 20 cm leather bag comes adorned with studs on the sides and on the sling. And instead of the usual flat leather straps most Valentino’s bags come in, these ones come with stiff rolled leather handles, which are by far more comfortable, and easier on the eyes, standing in place nicely as opposed to the former that just flops over.

Ladies who I’ve observed carrying this bag are also younger, from the blonde in jeans at Malpensa with her Rockstud Double Handle Bag in a bright hue of red, to the Chinese chick at HKIA with her stunner in deep blue with silver studs. Priced atUSD1960 via Valentino online, you could order yourself one via the site which ships internationally and be the next girl I spot the next time I’m boarding a flight.

Valentino Red Rockstud Shoulder Bag

Red is the color that symbolizes luck in the Asian culture and is believed to award away the evil. In fashion, red is a color that needs to be used with caution, overdo it and it can make you look funny.

But if you blend red with the right combination of shoes, clothes and jeans, you can create magical things. Red is where people turn their eyes to, it’s the shade that makes our heart beat a little bit faster.

The Valentino Red Rockstud Shoulder Bag got it all, it’s refined with beautiful golden hardware to make it look beyond luxurious. The gold is bling’ing and reflecting to the lights. It is a gorgeous accessory that will attract attention, compliments and perhaps a few free drinks. But anyway, it’s a great conversation starter and will also bring a lot of confident.

Red and Bags, Valentino knows how to get it done. Decorated with pyramid stud trim throughout, it also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. The front flap is embellished with a flip-clasp closure and it got a gold logo stamp at the back face.

The interior is made with a zip pocket and is fully lined, measuring 7.5’ x 5.5’ x 2’ (L x H x W) inches, for $1,375 USD at SSENSE.

Which Trend Were You Wrong About?

Valentino Rockstud Bags

I’ve never liked admitting when I’m wrong about something, but when that something turns out to be a thing I enjoy that I had originally hated, that softens the blow a little bit. When it comes to handbags, the first things on that list are the Valentino Rockstud Bags.

When Valentino’s uber-successful line first debuted, it was with VaVaVoom bags during the brand’s Spring 2011 runway show. Valentino had been searching for its accessories identity for seasons, and it was beginning to feel like the brand’s then-fairly new creative directors might not find their groove. It felt like studs had been all over everything for years on end, and the finger-slips at the front of the VaVaVoom just didn’t quite make sense to me. (They still don’t, really, but the rest of the line is good enough to excuse it.)

A lot of you agreed with me in the comments on that initial review, but somehow, Valentino went on to tweak and expand the collection, making me and thousands of others into believers over the intervening three years. They’re surpassed “trend” and now seem like they’re headed toward “classic” – a bag that the brand can tweak and reissue to great customer response for years to come. I’m glad I was wrong about them.

Which bag or trend did you dismiss at first, only to come around to it later? Let us know in the comments.
