Valentino Denim Petale Hobo | Rosette Detailed Blue Denim Luxury Flower Bag

Posted on: Feb 7

Dramatic and dazzling, Valentino dresses up denim with this Petale hobo bag.

It might be made of a similar substance to our favorite Levis, but you'd never know it. The soft slouch is more languorous and sensual than we typically see on a hobo, a stark contrast to the oversized rosette detail. This is a structured beauty, with each and every petal falling just as Valentino intended it to. The unusual combination is striking and one which suits a much more modern kind of femininity than any delicate bloom.

It's just a shame Valentino didn't put the same sort of effort in when designing the interior. This is a massive bag, and without any pockets inside it only seems larger. Prepare to spend a lot of time scrounging for your keys and ringing cell phone if you add this purse to your collection.

I might be able to forgive that annoyance if the price were reasonable. For me that bottom line is the biggest disappointment. It doesn't seem to matter what material Valentino uses; the brand wants to charge us top dollar. Anyone who hoped denim would bring the price down will be sorely disappointed. At $1195, this is a case of paying more for the name than the bag I think!
