There are some bold color combinations out there, but nothing seems as bold as red and black. Whether it is a print or blocks of color, red and black can make a huge statement. For some, this color combination can be a bit overpowering. This is especially true if we’re talking about clothing. On the other hand, if we’re talking about a handbag, I think it is totally doable. That is why I jumped at the chance to take a closer look at the lovely piece you see here, the Valentino Mini Lock Rockstud Bag.
This latest rendition of the classic Valentino Mini Lock Rockstud features everything I would normally expect from this style. It has a flap closure with the signature push lock clasp and it has the signature rockstud embellishment running down the middle of the flap. The gold tone hardware and chain strap look gorgeous against the red and black background. But what I really love is the unique beading seen throughout. The leather body features slits where blocks of seed beads are attached giving this bag an interwoven look throughout. What I also love about this bag is that it is sort of dressy and sort of casual at the same time. It even has this gothic-like element to it.
The mini version of the Valentino Mini Lock Rockstud Bag is updated with beautifully tough-luxe embellishment, making it a must-have for chic evening occasions. Interwoven beading creates a textured pattern contrasting with smooth leather, while the bright red hue pops next to the timelessly chic black flap. Retails for $2995
