Before Valentino officially debuted their now iconic Rockstuds, the Italian luxury fashion house experimented with studs and embellishment on its handbags. One bag in particular was beloved by celebs and was even spotted on the arm of a character from the hit TV show Gossip Girl. That bag, the Maison Pintucked Shopper, was carried by stars like Hilary Duff, Nicky Hilton, Cameron Diaz, Kim Kardashian and more at the height of its popularity.
A quintessential late 2000s bag, this carryall was large enough to tote around a lot of one's precious belongings and featured a top handle that sat in the crook of your arm. A few of these snaps are below, along with over a handful of other popular Valentino bags of the past. One thing is clear by the looks of these bags: Valentino has always paid attention to embellishments and details, making covetable bags that are instantly identified as Valentino. Take a look at our finds below; do/did you own any of these oldies?
