I keep finding myself drawn into Valentino bags. The continuous use of whimsical bows and feminine touches is so appealing. However, Valentino is not immune to having an off bag and this bag may be an example. Animal print bags really put me on the fence typically. I do not own an animal print bag, I seem to always find something I do not like about each of the ones I see.
The Valentino Leopard Print Goat Hair Bag brings together a leather bow detail at the front of the bag with a leopard-print goat hair body. Leopard print is a popular animal print that when put on a handbag usually skates a fine line between fabulous and trashy.
So where does this bag fall? Let’s go over the details. I really am liking that the bow detail is incorporated on this bag, bringing back the signature feminine touch that I crave from Valentino. The shape of the bag has a nice slouch, but I do not like the way it fits on the model. And if I don’t like how it fits on the model, I am not sure I will like it on me. I like a handbag with ample shoulder drop, and this bag does not seem to have it. Then we have the leopard-print goat-hair. The print itself looks good for a leopard print. The finished product however is not cutting it for me. I must admit, for a leopard print bag this is a very nice one though. Buy through Net A Porter for $2,695.
