I was like a kid in a candy store when I stumbled upon The Bag Edit in the latest issue of Vogue Magazine. My excitement couldn’t be contained when I discovered the summer of love Valentino are having, with their 1973 collection; here’s why…
Valentino are easily a favourite designer of mine because their styles are tough and edgy yet exude an air of easy going, swingy Bohemia associated with 60’s and 70’s hippy styles. The 1973 collection reminds us they know how to help rock a pop of colour by studding their visual delights.
This is one of the SS15 styles that will awaken your love of colour once again, and colour aplenty is packed into the even the smallest of these accessories.
If you’re colour shy and don’t quite have the confidence to sport one of the pretty Rockstud totes or invest in the striped chevron sweater (£1,295) you can always opt to add subtle rainbow accents to your look with Valentino’s many 1973 Rainbow Chevron resin bangles, or even swap your ordinary evening bag for the 1973 clutch.
You don’t have to wear the collection from head to toe for one of these accessories to make a statement; one of the Rockstud bags or a pair or Rockstud flats will jazz up any work, party or weekend ensemble!
If you’ve fallen in love with Valentino’s latest offerings, they’ll set you back a few bob! The Rockstud Bayadera clutch can be yours for £1,045 and the mini double Rockstud tote is slightly pricier at £1,225.
