Valentino has recently introduced us to the “Kaleido Vertical Tote” and I must admit it is different. The question is though, is this handbag unique or just plain tacky? The whole entire handbag is dressed in resin stones. It may look as if the handbag has a futuristic feel, and does pass as something that would be labeled as “cool.” To actually wear this handbag in public is a different story. For one thing, it would look like you are carrying one big mirror on your shoulder. It could be helpful if you needed a mirror fairly quick, but other than that what good is this bag?
One major downfall about this bag, is that we all know handbags go through wear and tear. What would someone do if one of the resin stones fell out? It would be like a sore spot on the handbag, when the whole bag looks like glass then you see a chunk missing.
I’m not even sure what season to carry thing bag in to be honest. It has such a different look, that I suppose you could wear it whenever you pleased. It doesn’t have a main color that sticks out, so it’s kind of a toss up for when you would use this handbag.
I would personally love to know how much this bag weighs. I’m sure with all those stones, the handbag is quite heavy. Imagine it already being heavy, then after putting all of your stylish essentials in the bag how much more heavier would it be?
I usually love Valentino but I have to admit that this handbag is a fashion error to me. The worst part of it all isn’t even the look of the bag it’s the price!
The Valentino Kaleido Vertical Tote can be purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue for $2,995, which is absolutely absurd to me. Not only is the handbag ugly, but the price is even uglier! Tacky purse with a horrible price, what more else can go wrong with this bag?
