Crazy cool details make this reiteration of Valentino’s popular rockstud bag a trendy must-have
If you were a fan of Louis Vuitton in the early 2000s, then it's likely you either had, or desperately wanted, a Louis Vuitton Monogram Denim Bag. Back then I was in my pre-teen and early teen years, and I had no business dreaming of one because there was no shot that one would ever be mine. I did set my sights on a more attainable denim bag from Coach, though I never did get that one, either. Season after season, denim bags pop up here and there among designers collections, though I can't remember the last time denim bags were a full-on trend. Maybe a couple of a seasons ago? Regardless, there are very few denim bags that actually capture—and keep!—my attention, and since the Louis Vuitton denim bags of the early 2000's there hasn't been one that I truly wanted to make mine, until now. PurseBloggers, but especially denim lovers, let me introduce you to The Valentino Rockstud Spike Chain Bag in Denim.
I'm not all that amazed at how much I love this bag, given my current Rockstud love and my past crush on the Rockstud Spike Chain Bag. The only thing here that really surprises me is that this bag is denim, and as I said above, I haven't found a denim bag that I truly wanted to make mine in ages. This bag has all the qualities that a denim bag should have, and while one might think this bag is overly trendy, it seems that Rockstuds are sticking around, so I wouldn't mind investing in this trendy little lady. I love everything from the quilted, studded denim body of the bag to the ragged detailing, which is unique to the denim version of the Rockstud Spike Chain Bag.
The bag is made of quilted denim with contrasting stitching in Valentino's signature red. Platinum studs in Valentino's classic pyramid shape finish off this flap bag, which features a turncock closure. It's lined in denim and has one interior zip pocket. The bag can be carried via the top handle, but it can also be worn crossbody or over the shoulder with the chain strap. Both the denim top handle and the chain strap are completely detachable, so you can either carry it one way or with both the top handle and chain strap attached. The bag is big enough to take you from day to night, and I was able to fit in my small zip-around wallet, Ray-Ban sunglasses (with case), my cell phone, a notebook, a protein bar, and some cosmetics, which I kept in the zippered pocket. Overall dimensions of The Valentino Rockstud Spike Chain Bag in Denim are 6" L x 9" W x 2.6" D, which retails for $2,675 via Net-a-Porter.
