Couture meets street wear


Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli redefine the luxury brand’s classics with a risqué-meets-elegant formula.

Medium tote bags


This modern take comes in the form of must-have bag (and shoes), the “Rockstud,” worn by celebrities like Alexa Chung, Gwyneth Paltrow and Clémence Poésy and fashion editors like Giovanna Battaglia and Anna Dello Russo. Another iconic piece is the VaVaVoom shoulder bag that’s both dainty and edgy.


In the usual black or punchy red, among other colors, the current arm candies are sparingly enhanced with complementary metal details. As embellishment and structure unite, the collections bring about new interpretations of Valentino’s trademark style.
