The Subtly Elegant Valentino Tone on Tone Bags

VLogo and Romanstud are given a single color treatment.

The success of Valentino in the past decade and a half stems from Pierpaolo Piccioli at the helm and the continuation and modernization of House codes. Thru his vision and creativity, we have been given Valentino Garavani Pink PP and the continued evolution of the Rockstud and the Valentino Logo. In fact, the Valentino Garavani Rockstud was born from Piccioli’s vision in 2010 and continues to be reinterpreted as a best-seller for the House.

As visions are updated, there has been a new take on Valentino Garavani logo hardware and the now iconic rockstuds. This season, we have the Valentino Garavani Locò and Valentino Garavani Romanstud redesigned in tone-on-tone versions, giving us a seamless look at House classics.

This feeling of high and low, punk and tame, couture and streetwear continues to cohabitate in this collection, and we share our vision through our lens. The idea that everything shown feels both archival and current makes each of these bags feel timeless in a way that allows them to be part of your evolving wardrobe.

Our creation involves a touch of Mad Men era vibes in a modern-day setting. We dress for ourselves, for style, for comfort, and each of these outfits allows just that – a playful approach to modern-day dressing that gives us a blank slate to show our personal flair for everyday wear.

Locò for the Valentino Logo

The simplicity of this bag has quickly made it a beloved bag because as much as it is simple in design, the VLogo signature detail is large enough to be attention-grabbing, and I mean that in a good way. I am happy to have a sleek and elegant bag that still has the designer touch, and this bag has it. There are different sizes, but the overall design remains the same.

These versions that offer the tone-on-tone hardware also fall into the neutral family, from black to brown to differing hues of beige and tan with pink undertones. This entire color story is demure and really delightful in its simplicity.

As for the bag itself, there is a detachable sliding chain strap and a detachable leather handle allowing for multiple ways of carrying. The magnetic closure allows for easy opening and closing, and the interior is lined with Nappa leather lining and offers one slip pocket.

The calfskin leather is smooth and durable, and the enamel tone-on-tone VLogo Signature detail is the defining emblem of this bag. Dimensions of the larger size are 10.6″ W x 5.1″ H x 2.4″ D, while those of the small size are 7.8″ W x 4.3″ H x 1.9″ D.

Tonal Romanstud

The Valentino Garavani Romanstud was a continuation and update to the Rockstud family, and with each new iteration, it is clear that this line will be woven into the very ethos of the brand. The Romanstud is a line from Valentino Garavani I am quite fond of; I own one bag myself, and this tonal version gives a more subdued look at how the update to the stud family continues for the brand.

The lambskin Nappa leather is incredibly smooth, and the tone-on-tone stitching for the argyle patterned quilted leather with the tonal maxi studs offers a new and enticing finish. The sliding chain strap and handle are detachable, allowing for different carrying, and the twist lock closure opens to show the Nappa lining, zipper, and flat pocket.

A few different variations of this bag also exist, but we focused on two shapes, one that is more of a handle bag for your grab-and-go looks and the other being the one above, which feels a bit more mainstream by design and level of wear when I see on others.

Valentino Toile Iconographe

The idea of an all-over-monogram-print typically doesn’t interest me, that is, until I found the Valentino Garavani Toile Iconographe print. And it seems I’m not the only one. The V logo print is busy enough that it more often looks like a geometric pattern than an over-the-top full ensemble logo, and when worn well, it is one of the most elegant looks there is. The Valentino Garavani monogram has never been chicer, from flowy pants and blouses to a more structured, thick Toile Iconographe with leather trim. And this V logo coincides with the Loco bag in a matching manner.

Nothing more “subtle” than a monogram total look and a giant V hardware on a bag. 🙄

I actually like the V logo more than any other logo’s out there. As Megs said, the all over logo does seem more like a geometric pattern. So if you were someone who wasn’t ‘in the know’ you would have no idea it was a logo. Obviously us here know exactly what it is. I love that dress and love the monochromatic stud bags too.

I like how it looks more like a pattern than monogram!

Their pattern logo is probably the best on the market. I don’t want a rockstud bag anymore, but that VLogo bag is so nice!

I like the clothes, but not the bags. The bags seem very bland to me and similar to a lot out there already.

That evening bag is so pretty! I love Valentino and that version of the logo is great. Going to check in my local boutique this week!

I didn’t know a bag could look sick. It also looks kinda bored, like it’s tired of waiting to be seen by the doctor, but it’s color hasn’t come in yet, so it knows something is wrong. Or like it got stuck in the first 17 minutes of Wizard of Oz.

Quiet luxury it’s not but at least it’s tone on tone.

The V logo is hands down the nicest logo out there other than Loewe and a lot of people don’t know what it is so you can wear it and not feel like you’re going “hey look at me”.

I’m not a fan of logos all over but the black and beige one I really like. I purchased the long sleeve top without the collar, so scoop neck type. Like someone said, unless you know the designer most won’t know it’s the Valentino logo. And I love it with leather pants and the black pumps! So chic.
