Valentino is one of the most iconic and admired designers of the twentieth century. His level of taste and attention to detail are basically beyond reproach. When he retired, a lot of people felt like the line was never going to be the same. Looking at bags like this, I think they might be right.
I have nothing good to say about this bag. The shape and design of the bag itself are derivative and boring. As a blank canvas, it might have worked out okay if it had been embellished in some extraordinary way. But it wasn't. Instead they printed a cheesy picture of a rhinoceros and a zebra in repose.
Even the cheesy picture might have been okay if it had been blown up in some way that rendered it less obvious. But, no. This $4,990 handbag just has a terrible print of these two animals on it, embellished with the most tacky sequins and feathers that I can imagine. Poor retired Valentino should sue for character defamation.
While this bag is made of luxurious, buttery soft nude leather and crafted with the highest quality craftsmanship, it still looks like something you might pick up in a zoo gift shop. Five grand to look like the lady that only shops in tourist depots? I don't think so.
