Walk into any Valentino boutique today and you will find yourself surrounded by a wide assortment of bags that come decorated with Valentino’s signature V. The most eye-catching design of the lot has got to be the original VLOGO series which sports an enlarged logo printed across sizeable totes and top handle bags that come in materials like canvas or leather, for example. Then there’s the iconic VRING range of bags which come decked out with shiny gold V hardware, finished with an additional circular hoop and leather tab.
Today, the spotlight falls on the newest member of the Valentino family, one that comes with a tone-on-tone V logo hardware (essentially antique brass that’s given a leather overlay) built right in. And although it comes in two sizes, the Small (featured above) is frankly good enough for a day (or evening) out with the girls, one that measures 18 cm by 16 cm, with a pretty deep base of 8.5 cm that will hold all your essentials nicely within. The other plus point about the VSLING bag has got to be its versatility, thanks to the extendable shoulder strap it comes with.
The bag comes in 7 different colours, but sadly only 4 (Black, Orange, Pinkand White) are currently available in boutiques in Singapore, and priced at SGD3440 each. Alternatively, you can head over to Valentino’s online store, where a select number of colours is available at USD2580 with complimentary shipping that will reach you within 2 to 4 days.
