Valextra Babila Bag in Oyster
I receive countless emails daily asking me what brand to buy that is not over-done, over-logoed, and classic. Of course there are Hermes bags and Lambertson Truex (my new obsession), and of course many of the exotic handbag designer specialists. But there is another gem out of Italy, a little known gem that you may know about, but not know about. It is Valextra. Valextra handbags exude a look of clean lines, timeless appeal, and impeccable quality. They are a little known gem for the work that they do, but a gem is still a gem. We have covered Valextra Bags before and now I am happy to bring you a new addition to the Valextra family for Fall/Winter 08. The Valextra Babila Bag is designed with soft leather and is available in a variety of colors. The shape is simple, yet perfect for work and day-to-day wear. It is the kind of bag that is so simple yet so elegant that it needs to explanation. There are no logos to be found on the bag. Just clean lines. There is a zipper top closure and double shoulder straps. The bag is available in brilliant green, tundra, and oyster. The price will be $ 2,380 and this bag and other Valextra bags can be found at Barney’s NY (212.833.2583) or find more information at Valextra online.
