The sun must be out somewhere. Not here!!!
If you are lucky enough to be in a warm and sunny climate, this bag, by Valentino Garavani, will take you through all those glorious and sunny days. It is medium to large size and is a satchel type with two rolled handles as well as a shoulder bag. There is a detachable clip on leather shoulder strap ready for those days when you need the use of your hands. It is very curved and rounded. It is made from leather and a woven straw. The straw seems to feel as though it has been coated to preserve and protect it. The color of the straw is a light wheat color. The leather is a deep camel color. The contrast between the two materials is noteworthy and significant. The front panel has a palette of embroidered flowers, specially deep red poppies. They are dramatic and there are flaxen flora surrounding the intense poppies. It makes a statement but is not in “your face.” Typical Valentino. There is a huge silver tone charm with the “v” logo. This charm has bevel set coral pieces, tiny crystals and engravings. It is dimensional and is signed on the back. Valentino Garavani is also stamped on another tag, this time in leather. There is a huge zipper that goes from one side of the bag to the other. The drop of the handles are 7” to the top of the bag, the drop of the shoulder strap is 18”. There are 4 protective feet on the bottom. The inside is lined in a wine colored satin. There is an open slip pocket. The Valentino Garavani red label
is inside. The inside has little signs of use or age. The bag measures 11”w x 9” h x 4 1/2”d. The bag is in great condition with minor vintage indications. There are some marks on the back side of the large charm. This is a bright and cheery bag by a master. It almost gives me hope the the sun will return to this neck of the woods someday! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
