Valentino usually just releases a lookbook for its pre-fall and resort collections, but since Maria Grazia Chiuri left for Dior and her former partner, Pierpaolo Piccioli, assumed full creative control, how the brand does things has shifted slightly. On Wednesday, Piccioli put on Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2017 show at New York’s Beekman Hotel, and the bags on the runway were worthy of the occasion.

Side-shot detail photos aren’t available from the show (or at least we couldn’t find them), but thankfully the front-on runway shots give a pretty decent view of some of the bags in the collection. The big story is the debut of a large satchel that will come in tons of colors, leathers and embellishments, including patterned fur and glossy crocodile. That fills a gap in Valentino’s lineup that none of the previous Rockstud bags ever quite did: a roomy, polished, structured day bag.

Check out all the versions of that bag, as well as the others from the runway, below.

Love #14, but does it not look a bit like the Givenchy Shark bag?

Why are they carrying the bag with the handle within the handle. You can’t get a good take on it. Really want to see the bag properly carried before deciding. I do love that they aren’t overly embellished!

The bag in slide 10 is my favorite. Definitely would be interested in buying. I’m not crazy about the flap bag.

About time they came up with some new shapes. Looking forward to see the materials, workmanship and detailing they have lined up.

I guess that one would have to wait on better pictures because you really can’t get a feel of the bag because of the STUPID way that they are holding it. I know that this is a show, but you’re still are supposed to be presenting a product to buyers.

putting a handle on the flap is such a bad idea! guess that’s why you have to carry the bag in a such strange way?

Bags these days are not made to last or the designer must expect women to carry minimum judging from the way the handles are attached to the body of the bag. I guess I’m not the one they design for.
