Ok, so we'll have to wait for Spring/Summer 2011, in the meantime I'll try to organize my collection of retail pictures.
Please remember that Valentino doesn't show every bag they make for a season at the runway. So if you have a bag you don't see in runway pictures, it doesn't necessarily mean it wasn't made by Valentino.
Nowdays, pyramidal studs are as Valentino-esque as flowers and bows; and that is a reality we all have to deal with. Chiuri and Piccioli have gracefully created a new Valentino realm within Garavani's kingdome, respecting it's codes and giving the brand a new, different glow. Let's applaud them for that.
For this collection, the duo experimented with materials but the shapes were simple, very reminiscent of the bags the brand presented in the late 90's or early 00's. There's the brilliance of it: polished, not exploratory.
this made me
No!!! Say it ain't so! LOL! Actually I've grown to almost like the studs. I have my little studded cinched Maison and my studded flip flops and I like to wear them for a "harder" look. When bows and flowers don't seem right. So I'm beginning to "DEAL" LOL!
