Fall is all about fur and one of the other fall trends is lace. Of course Valentino released countless lace items, from shoes to clothing to bags. Seeing as how Valentino has perfected the art of feminine designs, it is only fitting for Valentino to tackle lace. As far as this bag goes however, it just isn’t quite cutting it for me.

The Valentino Day Lace Medium Duffle features a familiar shape (Louis Vuitton Speedy anyone?) with a black floral vine lace over.


I have absolutely no doubt that this Valentino bag, like all others, is of premium quality. But I always always find lace over leather to look a bit cheap. Like vinyl. I know part of that is personal preference and part comes from seeing many designers do this in vinyl, it just never strikes a chord with me. The tubular leather top handles have a 5″ drop, so the bag will be hand-held. Dimensions are 10 1/2″H x 12 1/2″W x 7″D. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $935.

Are you feeling this lace trend on handbags?

    Looks alot like the speedy, WTH all the premium designers seem to be copying each other now!!!!!!

  • noway

    It looks like a cheap speedy imitation

    Valentino’s FW10/11 lace clutch is far more impressive. It’s lithe lace material exudes feminity whiles the signature Valentino bow exudes classic chic. Perfect in size and an impeccably lady-like clutch.

    Available in both black and gray:

  • qudsia

    its such a pretty bag! But if i didnt know any better, i wouldve thought it was an le speedy or something.

  • Demi

    It looks like a speedy, but I prefer Valentino’s lace design than the Monogram Canvas.

  • hect

    So basically it’s an LV speedy wrapped in lace and slapped with the Valentino logo.

    Very creative.

    well it does look cheap in person. and the only leather are the handles and zip tab. the lace is laid over vinyl, but we should all be used to Valentino putting out plastic. the patent nuages and bow totes aren’t leather yet are consistently $995/1195…
    you’re obviously paying for the name & iconic shapes, this time you’re paying for the name and someone else’s iconic shape… go figure
