Valentino Mink Trim Shoes and Handbag

For Labor Day, I’ll try something new here at our blog. Our frequent reader Chemlex suggested that we should not only focus on handbags per se, but also feature shoe accessories that would complement the bag when worn out. Great idea me thinks, and she’s right when she says that it certainly ain’t no requirement to match up bag and shoe anymore, but it’s still great to see what today’s top designers match up. If the feedback is right, we’ll continue doing so, but if the crowd agrees that we should stick strictly to the bags — we shall.

Our first touple to be critically evaluated are the Valentino Mink-Trim Metallic Bag and Slides. First impression: vurrry chic, indeed. After all, we don’t do much ugly and crappy junk here. The combo strikes with pure luxury, the mink contrasts fantastically with the metallic gold leather. The handbag sports a black trim and gold metallic double straps, attached via golden hardware. A croc-embossed tab with a studded keeper, and lots more golden studs across the bag’s body extend the luxe indefinitely. The bag’s here for pre-order via Bergdorf Goodman for $2,200.

Valentino’s Mink-Trim Metallic Slides are the perfect match for the bag, giving a vibe of pure luxury just as much as their shoulder companion. The shoes feature a brown mink flower with jeweled alligator-embossed leather leaves on a gathered upper. The Italian made slides go for $540, also via Bergdorf Goodman.

    I don’t know WHAT’s up with all the fur this season, it’s horrendous, most of it. Aside from the gucci rabbit hobo (poor bunnies) which is not bad, the rest of the fur-frontin bags I’ve seen make me feel like I have a hairball in my throat, including this one. I’ve had it with horrific metallic everything, and I’m sorry but fur?? Toss the bag, and the shoes, into the East River and make the world a better place.

    As a pair, they complement each other well. They don’t fit into my lifestyle but I am a more practical working woman. In another life though, I can invision myself flitting around in the heels…

    Matching bags and shoes when done right really can make an outfit -and can save you a few precious moments when getting ready to go out.

    I think this bag and shoes are the perfect example of how charming it can be. And for some reason, I am not minding the fur.

    This fall extravagant texture is really in – which is weird, because I don’t think the economy has risen enough to support this trend.

  • Roxie

    The shoes are gorgeous! I think pairing it with the bag makes for a the total effect very glamorous indeed. Feature more charming bag – shoes match-ups!

  • Superqueen

    The shoes remind me of the Manolo Blahnik pumps with white rabbit fur rosettes in front.

  • Horse Lover

    Very cute, but personally, I’d like it better without the croc hide and mink fur. (I’m totally against hunting for fashion.)

  • Lisa

  • Meredith

    I LOVE the shoes. I just checked and they are in very limited supply at Bergdorf’s. I am mourning the loss as we speak.

  • Christina Mcguinness

    Please do not use real fur..if you look at the China fur farms a video by P.E.T.A.. you will cry for a week.. don’t do this to our animals. This is not what God would want..and any person that does buy fur is a selfish person without a soul.

    Thanks for your attention.

    Fur is so cruel and unnecessary. Anyone who uses it or wears it has no heart.

    These poor animals are tortured and skinned alive just so someone can wear THEIR fur on a pair of shoes, bag, or coat???????? Absolutely disgusting.

  • Fur Lover

    The soft touch of a fur coat will turn a woman into a goddess. Every woman deserves to feel special. Your fur fashion guide helps fur lovers to select fabulous furs.

    As far as fur bags go, this is one of the most stylish that I’ve seen, but that’s not saying much. The shoes are better. (ipad)

  • KY

    I don’t like it. (ipad)

    I hope that Valentino realizes one day how cruel he is. If he is gay he must have felt discrimination himself, then why can’t he be sensitive enough with animals used as objects and having a terrible death with torture?
