With the spirit of romance, sensuality, and a dash of punk, the Valentino Garavani Stud Sign Bag arrives just in time to transform your fall wardrobe. Featured in striking black or white, the coveted piece exudes seduction from its signature red nappa lining to the designer’s evocative narrative behind the iconic VLogo Signature.
Valentino’s evocative rock studs pull from the brand’s signature style and served as the inspiration for our VP of Fashion and Creative Director, James Aguiar. Together with photographer, Helena Palazzi, James and Helena explored a world of dichotomies.
“I immediately fell in love with the juxtapositions of the bags. Uptown meets downtown: A lady who lunches, with a Sid Vicious vibe,” James said. “The oversized studs and the strong shape speak volumes as a statement piece.”
James and Helena present in the shoot the artistry of when danger and elegance come together in perfect harmony. The rarified Valentino Garavani Stud Sign Bag is paired alongside the subversive latex hand not usually seen in the daylight hours, evoking a refreshing feeling of freedom.
“The element of surprise and seeing things in a new way is very punk. The bags would be at home and look right in any setting and any look,” said Aguiar.
