On the strength of its Rockstud bags, Valentino has become a major player in the accessories industry in a relatively short amount of time. Now that the Rockstud has transitioned from trend darling to a potential classic, though, the brand has taken on the task of slowly moving customers on to the next things. You'll find some of those in the Valentino Pre-Fall 2015 collection, and we have all the bags for your browsing pleasure.
The most notable addition to Valentino's stable of bags is a structured shoulder bag with a custom lock that's reminiscent of Hermès' signature Collier de Chien closure. Of course, that means that it has a couple of studs; the brand has done an uncommonly good job at extending its Rockstuds in subtle ways that give the brand's collections a sense of continuity with each other without boring its customers.
There are a few things in this collection that don't make sense, though, and chiefly among them is the monogram print that Valentino has used here and there in the past, but not consistently. There isn't much love for logo bags in fashion lately, and trying to monogram canvas happen right now seems like a poor use of resources. To each their own, though; check out the full slate of accessories from the lookbook below.
