Normally I will gush with excitement over a Valentino bag but I am not so sure anymore today. As you know, I adore bow, sequin and ruffle. But, when all 3 elements are put together, I am not feeling it. I will be the first to admit this Valentino 360 sequin and ruffle hobo is unique and quite interesting but what in the heck is a gal to do with it? It is a show piece that will become dated next year. Maybe we have to treat it like a collectible. In my humble opinion, this bag has too much of all the good things......
Instead of the show piece, I like the normal 360 hobo with its bow detail and classic silhouette. Now this is a feminine romantic bag a gal will adore for many season to come. The leather is supple and collapses into a casual elegant tote.
There are two sizes available. The large is 17 x 12 x 6 inch for $1395 and the small is 14 x 8 x 6 inch for $1295. What do you think?
