With some of the most talked-about collections in recent memory, Valentino is top of mind right now. The XXL bubblegum-pink collared shirt from the S/S 21 collection set the trend for bold, oversize button-downs that are still big among fashion insiders to this day. The fall 2021 couture collection quickly made it on every stylist’s short list, with showstopping feather hats that landed on celebs including Lady Gaga. Fast-forward to the S/S 22 collection, and Valentino is yet again defining the biggest trends of the season with its color-packed runway featuring vibrant shades like hot pink and kelly green, which are huge at the moment.
Another way Valentino is making an impact? Reimagined takes on its iconic hardware that is a signature on the Roman Stud bag—a style that we've spotted on celebs and fashion insiders everywhere. Designed in a range of shapes, including a top-handle style, a shoulder bag, and a tote, and finishes ranging from soft quilted leather to woven wool, there are so many cool takes on the bag. Each is finished with pyramid studs, making it an instantly recognizable accessory. Ahead, I’m diving further into the Valentino Roman Stud bag.
