A few seasons ago Valentino made an accessory move that no one expected: the brand presented a rockstud free fashion show. The bags showcased a new direction for the handbag giant, and though the iconic Rockstuds have since returned to the runway, the brand has also put a new focus on its logo bags. Last spring the VRING bag (a smooth, slouchy shoulder bag) was introduced, and now for fall 2019, the latest iteration of the brand’s logo is prominently featured on a new line of bags. Introducing: the Valentino VSLING Bag.
The VSLING bag is more structured than the VRING bag, with clean, delicate lines and a boxy shape. It’s said to be inspired by the geometric shapes of the ’70s—principals on which made Maison Valentino great, a press release for the bag states. The bag features the new VLOGO, however it’s done this time in a minimalist way, featuring monochromatic tones that match the bag’s leather. The VSLING Bag is made of beautiful, smooth napa leather. At its core, Valentino is known for beautiful designs that are also incredibly well crafted, and this design is no different. It’s stunning in both its simplistic design as well as its craftsmanship. The attention to detail in Valentino’s bags is almost unmatched, and the VSLING bag showcases the Maison’s iconic reputation.
While we love the artsy, edgy chic lip print, the VSLING bag also comes in an array of monochromatic tones. From neutrals like the white below, to bright pinks and reds there is an array of options to pick from. The VSLING bag has a magnetic button closure, with an innovative VLOGO mechanism that opens and closes. A dainty, slim gold chain not only adds a feminine touch to the bag, but it also adjusts the length of the shoulder strap, allowing the bag to be worn short or long. The interior of this bag is lined in leather (a huge plus!) and there are two internal compartments separated by a zippered pocket. The overall dimensions are 7″ L x 8.5″ W x 4″ D. Purchase the printed version for $3,675 via Barneys or shop more varieties of the VSLING bag via Net-a-Porter.
