Make a strong style statement with the latest addition to Maison Valentino’s line of studded bags.
Sometimes, all you need is one definitive expression to show your style. The Valentino Garavani One Stud bag is an exceptional example of when less is more. First presented during the Valentino Rendez-Vous Spring/Summer 2022 fashion show, the bag’s design is a contemporary reinterpretation of the iconic Stud, it marks the further evolution of the Valentino Garavani Roman Stud family.
Taking centrestage is the singular, 4×4 maxi stud in antique brass finishing. Its lines extend to the body of the bag, shaping the flap and replicating a magnified vision of the Maison’s iconic rhombus pattern intersection. This reimagined version of the stud is also a touch of covert brilliance – the stud functions as the magnetic closure on the shoulder bags and the clutch in this line. Other details on the bag reveal more of the Maison’s exquisite craftsmanship – reverse stitching that conceals the seams, soft nappa leather that gives the bag its luscious feel, a solid structure that holds its shape, and the distinctive petit chain that distinguishes the Valentino Garavani accessories.
Behind this deceptively simple design is a result of an in-depth research process; it takes 25 hours of skilled labour from 10 different artisans to create the Valentino Garavani One Stud bag, the signature stud taking 9 hours to realize, while the shoulder bag takes more than 16 hours to materialize.
A versatile and highly expressive design, the Valentino Garavani One Stud bag celebrates individualism with a variety of shades for every mood, occasion and personality. The genderless appeal of the design exudes a powerful yet calm personality and marks the 7th and final chapter of Maison Valentino’s “Mastery Tales”: a narrative of beauty, creative fervour, passion and tradition that distinguishes the Bottega dell’Arte – the extraordinary savoir-faire of Italian artisanship and techniques of the Maison.
