“Unboxing Valentino: The New Valentino Garavani Shoulder Bags”

By Jo Phillips

We’re swooning over these Valentino Garavani shoulder bags plucked from the runway.

Just as the miserable grey skies begin to clear, Valentino Garavani unveils that its Unboxing Valentino Spring/Summer 2023 Collection has hit the stores. It’ll now be gracing the streets as well as the catwalk.

What can we expect from the Italian Maison that brought us vivacious look-at-me fuchsia Pink PP? The most sought-after and sported colour of the last few seasons. A new, thrilling direction. One where purity, form and neutral tones reign supreme.

From the first model that waltzed down the runway, it was evident this was a decidedly different affair. Freedom was in the air. This was a celebration of the democratic side of fashion, with Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli enlisting both first-time catwalkers and professionals to showcase the pieces. For the final act of rebellion, he walked out onto the street alongside his models to present the creations to everyone waiting outside.

Soft suiting, elegantly cascading gowns, floor-sweeping skirts and pared-back slinky silhouettes highlighted the shift to a more understated, low-key type of luxury, creating a stir in the fashion world. The glamour synonymous with Valentino was evident, but in subtle, intentional doses, emerging in delicate feather trims and pin-point accurate embellishments.

Stunning arm candy is one of the simplest ways to incorporate high fashion seamlessly into your wardrobe. Where modernity meets the classics, the latest Valentino Garavani shoulder bags leave plenty of room for self-expression.

Valentino Garavani Locò Shoulder Bag

One of the standouts on the runway, the Valentino Garavani Locò Shoulder Bag, was a sleek finishing touch to countless outfits. First launched for Spring 2022, the purse has received fresh updates every season. Inspired by the elongated shape of the locomotive, it’s a bold contemporary design that also doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The newest Valentino Garavani Locò shoulder handbags are awash in gorgeous neutral tones of nude, soft dusty pink and coffee brown. The colours are so delicious they exude all the lightness and froth of a perfect frappuccino. And if there’s anyone that’s renowned for their coffee, it’s the Italians. Same as a fresh brew, these handbags are like chameleons, effortlessly matching almost anything.

Glamour begins with chain shoulder straps that are adjustable and removable for maximum wearability. Don yours as a crossbody, shoulder bag or dangle it from your wrists. These statement purses are topped with the Maison VLogo Signature closure that departs from its usual gilded finish to feature a tone-on-tone VLogo that coordinates with the colour of the bag ultra-modern. Think a poppy-inspired Valentino Garavani red leather Locò finished off with a matching red VLogo Signature closure.

Let’s look at the runway for inspiration on how to style these Valentino Garavani Locò bag beauties. A tonal look is always a winning game plan. Picture nude-coloured Valentino Garavani Locò shoulder purses matched with a nude suit set — fashion heaven. Or mimic the catwalk and accessorise an oversized white button-down shirt with a pleated champagne-coloured skirt and a dusty pink Valentino Garavani Locò shoulder bag — dazzling.
