Valentino handbags never fail when it comes to making me drool! Each one is drop dead gorgeous in its own unique way. And for many bagistas, a Valentino handbag is the ultimate holy grail! The designer is famous for a lot of things. However, when I think of Valentino, it is either big bows or rosettes that come to mind. Hmm… but which one screams Valentino more? Right now, it has to be the rosettes! Oh my gosh, the Valentino Petale Tote is simply exquisite! But lately, Valentino seems to have moved past the extra large rosette design and has been experimenting with rosette clusters instead.
The result? Some equally gorgeous bags with a playful new twist. Take, for example, the Valentino Iris Crossbody Bag. It is new for the Holiday 2010 Collection. This lovely piece features tightly clustered rosettes on both front and back. I love the crossbody design (so unusual for Valentino) and the contrasting tassels.
This bag is so beautiful, you wouldn’t dream of using it for things you would normally use a crossbody bag for. This is definitely a special occasion bag and it would be perfect for all those holiday parties! Plus I love the neutral Camel color, it will look so fresh for the holiday season!
