Valentino Resort 2013 Handbags (5)

Even if you’re not looking to pre-order full price handbags six months before they come out, Moda Operandi is a great resource, particularly when both resort and pre-fall collections are starting to debut for editors. Those collections tend to keep the majority of their handbags from public view, but because MO often carries accessories pre-orders soon after a collection is shown to editors and buyers, it allows everyone a glimpse at what’s to come, even if you’re not interested in purchasing immediately. Think of it as shopping as research.

This week’s “research” involves the colorful, girlish bags from Valentino Resort 2013, which are on pre-order via MO through July 4. Fans of the brand’s beloved Rockstud line will find plenty of options to fill out their collections, and for the first time, some of the studs aren’t metallic. Valentino used tonal laquer to give a healthy portion of the Rockstud line a fresh feel, and from what I’ve seen of the rest of the collection, there’s a lot more where this came from. Check out what Moda and Valentino have to offer after the jump, or shop the sale via Moda Operandi.

    Yet another take on the Constance, like the Céline box. But I’m digging the studs a lot!

  • Fashiondoesntexist

    Great collection, love them all!

    But..where are the flowers? Valentino is one of the few (or only) brands to know how to work with flowers in a lady-like, luxurious manner. So stick with flowers! Those studs just don´t work for me.. the pieces look like a one-season-deal (even though its been a continuous design of Valentino) and appear rather cheap. I really miss the old Valentino bags!

    I am not impressed with this collection at all.

    Ok so I’m a “Whore” for studs lol but I’m so over it with Valentino and all the dag-um STUDS! I would like to see at least one if not two pieces that are fresh and new. What happen to it bas like the catch all bag, the Maison, The Nuage, Not to mention the Rose Dome and Tote Bags…Buffalo Leather, Coat Fabric, Denim…I don’t know guys…

    I love Valentino but do NOT like these bags. I agree with the earlier poster who said they look…cheap. Ugh!

  • Lingerie

    Whoah! I love fashion stuffs especially those bags. If you just have these 3. You can pair it with different outfit based on the color of your bag! I really appreciate the boldness of the color, it attracts everyone. Especially the pink and the green one! want to have them all!!
