My husband has been watching a lot of do-it-yourself shows lately. I am not sure why because he has always been pretty handy when it comes to home improvement stuff. Nevertheless, he will have the TV on one of the many channels featuring such shows and I will usually be sitting there casually watching. What always catches my eye though is when an interior decorator decides to do wallpaper in the house being worked on. Wallpaper is actually kind of hot right now, especially big and bold prints. Personally, I like the vintage-ish floral patterns. So when I first saw the Valentino Single Handle Floral Print Bag, you can probably guess what was going on in my head!
The larger than life floral print is actually printed right on the leather. I have mixed feelings when it comes to printed leather, but it seems to work pretty well here. I think a lot of that has to do with the smoothness of the leather. The way the print looks, the leather seems almost unreal. When I look at this bag, I definitely picture those vintage-inspired wallpapers I have been seeing everywhere. It would look lovely paired with the right outfit. Unlike the runway model, I don’t think this bag should be paired with other prints. My suggestion is a crisp white background to help showcase the print without making it too overwhelming.
A beautiful addition to your accessory collection, Valentino’s printed leather tote effortlessly combines multiple motifs for the chicest results. Let the blue and maroon hues transform simple tailoring. The small single handle bag is made in printed calfskin leather. Metal tuc closure covered in calfskin. Leather lining. Three internal compartments. Internal zip pocket and double open pocket. Retails for $3145
