We’re pretty spoiled for choice when it comes to the luxury handbag industry. With plenty of arm candy offerings – think purses, pouches and fanny packs – there are still certain handbags that attain cult status amongst celebrities over the years, including Valentino’s iconic Rockstud handbag.
Now, the current handbag du jour that we’re betting will be the new A-list-approved ‘it’ bag is the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike bag – a shoulder bag with enhanced volumes due to the extra padding that gives it a particularly puffy look. The piece takes a familiar elongated shape but it’s the materials and workmanship that define its value.
Crafted with luminous, glossy and precious leathers with a vintage aesthetic, it comes complete with a long flap, a leather shoulder strap and a short chain, as well as a contoured handle. Whilst the Rockstud Spike concept is all about expressing your personality and identity, the new reimagined Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike bag transforms into a versatile accessory, giving you the option to wear it as a classic shoulder bag or tucked under the arm.
Embodying the true values of the Maison – think artisan craftsmanship and a contemporary attitude – the new piece of arm candy comes in a colour palette that includes red, green, ivory, and gold, as well as special versions including black on black.
