Valentino Cassis Couture Bag
Here is yet another unique handbag design by one of my favorite Italian designers. It truly is different and at the moment, I have yet to see inspired bags sporting its style. Meet the Cassis Couture Bag by Valentino. This Valentino is definitely a couture bag, so couture; I personally don’t think it would make a great everyday bag. There’s just something about its plush-suede body that seems a bit too fragile for my busy lifestyle. I imagine rain would leave watermarks all over its soft leather, and too much exposure to sunlight might fade the luscious Berry color a bit. Yet I look at its artistic woven design and the great braided leather handles, and its just so tempting. If Valentino produced this same handbag in grained leather rather than soft suede, I know I’d consider adding it to my wish list, but until now, I’ll just continue admiring the Cassis Couture bag. Other great features found on this Valentino includes; gold hardware, feet to prevent the suede from scuffing, and a lovely structured silhouette. Ladies, if you have $1895 to spend on a hot Valentino purse, definitely check this one out; just imagine what a great smelling bag you’ll own!
