Valentino Blossom Satchel Bag
With it’s floral detailing of scrunched, twisted and pleated leather that portrays the shape of a flower, the Blossom Satchel by Valentino is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for upcoming warm weather. It’s available in both pink and black, which are both lovely. Though since Spring and Summer are just around the block, I’d personally opt for the pink version. Lately, I’ve been scoping it out online over at Neiman’s and Saks, and I seem to love it more each time. And besides it’s main blossom depiction, the next best thing about this piece are the shiny gold snakeskin handles. I think they add an amazing touch to the satchel, especially with metallics being ‘hot’. Though that brings me to another thought I had about this purse.
The only reason why I’m hesitant on buying the Blossom Satchel is where it exactly falls on the trend meter. I’m unsure if this would become more of a classic or if it’s on it’s way down a hill carrying the weight from the term “It” on it’s back. Honestly though, I don’t see anything about it that makes it too trendy or “over in a minute”. The textured leather with a floral influence is both feminine and elegant, while metallic elements (the handles) are becoming more accepted as classic. For me, with a steep price tag of $1,895, it’s definitely one to make sure of.
So, what are your thoughts on Valentino’s Blossom Satchel and what it will eventually become?
