Valentino Garavani bags are a veritable vision, flaunting biker spikes, quilted leather and gelato hued patterns. A maverick amongst handbag labels known for pushing fashion boundaries, carrying Valentino Garavani is a scintillating experience. Pretty pastel calf leather contrasts against woven geometric straps, while statement turquoise rocket studs team up with sleek, modern clasps.
A Glamorous Italian Narrative
Founded at the dawn of the swinging 60s by designer Valentino Garavani on Rome’s Via Condotti, the brand soon established itself as one of the world’s leading couturiers. The label’s full-length skirts rebelled against the trend of the mini, while the designer’s personal love affair with black, white and red lent collections drama and flair. Originally capitalizing on the success of Frederico Fellini’s cinematic masterpiece La Dolce Vita and screen siren du jour Anita Ekberg, Valentino Garavani designed and produced apparel that would accentuate the female form.
