Valentino rules the red carpet. And for good reason. His clothing is timeless, sophisticated, feminine, and the very definition of chic. His accessory line is an extremely worthy accompaniment to his clothing. And this to die for Rose Vertigo Shopper fits right in.
There are a lot of florals around this season. Floral print dresses, flower appliques, silk flower hair ornaments, you name it. But this, I think, is different. To call the Rose Vertigo Shopper floral is a little misleading. It is more like the sculptural interpretation of a flower wrought in high quality magenta leather.
The smooth sheen of the leather is the perfect balance of soft and durable, and I don't know what to say about the rippling rose molded out of the leather except maybe "wow". It really looks like an artwork in its own right. The "petals" flow across the leather so smoothly that they almost seem to be in motion, and they cascade to the bottom in delicate ruffles.
The color of the bag is rich, but not so punchy as many of the brights I've seen this season. The shape of the bag is that of a traditional tote, but it doesn't really matter, because the rose distracts you from everything behind it. At 13.5" x 14" x 5", it's a great size for your next super chic shopping trip. And the rolled leather handles are durable and well-shaped, although with only a 4.5" drop, it might be har to sling this tote over your shoulder. It's really meant for hand carrying, which could get tiring if you fill it to the top.
The Rose Vertigo Shopper is a luxury product with a luxury price tag. At $2,395, this is one rose that I am going to have to admire from afar.
