Iâ€™ve always been a fan of Valentinoâ€™s extra structured and braided Histoire Satchel, so when I heard the news that thereâ€™s a new Histoire in town, I definitely had to track it down. I can spot the resemblance from its older satchel sibling, but the end result is most definitely a very different product from the original. If the oversized taller classic wasnâ€™t suitable enough for you, then check out its more compact look.
In the new Histoire I like all of its features, but being such a huge fan of the Classic Histoire, I feel like this newbie is lacking. Comparing this to the Classic, the braided handles look flimsy, the over flap isnâ€™t quite as attractive, and Iâ€™m thinking small decorative pockets would have added more character to this version.
I also feel like a splash of color would have made this piece more attractive (just check out the luscious: Valentino Pearlized Blue Historie) but perhaps this is the first of the many new Histoireâ€™s that are coming our way. At the moment, this patent satchel arrives in an extra light pink hue (yes, itâ€™s patent light pink), and unfortunately carries a steep price tag of $1,895, which doesnâ€™t make sense at all since the classic and much larger Histoire carried that same price tag.
