Valentino Studded Maison Satchel
Valentino's bag designs can be hit or miss for me. I can usually find at least one to two styles to entice me each season though. The original releases of the Maison bag were huge hits! Gorgeous bags with beautiful pebbled leather, fresh architecture, and classy colors. This latest incarnation of the Maison falls short. I love it in black, but the studs take it from subtle and elegant to overdone and tacky. The studs were just not neccessary on such a beautifully designed bag. For $2495 the bag should be exceptional and this version missed the mark! Available at Saks.com.
