There was something darkly romantic about Valentino’s autumn/winter 2020 collection—an undercurrent that seems appropriate in the wake of the pandemic. Yet something beautiful grows out of every dark corner, and the same thing was true of Valentino’s collection.
Whether clasped in hand or tucked discreetly under an arm, it was hard not to notice the beautifully crafted bags that resembled an overgrown rose on the runway—the Valentino Garavani Atelier 03 Rose Edition. Inspired by the craft of couture, each of the 90 petals of the rose are hand-cut from leather and sewn individually onto the bag, creating a 3D, lifelike effect.
The gorgeous floral bag has quickly gained a celebrity following: Camila Morrone brought hers out for a coffee run in Malibu, Ana de Armas slung it nonchalantly over her shoulder on a day out with her friends, and Eiza González paired hers with a quirky, printed dress and colour-coordinated face mask.
Here in Singapore, the small Valentino Garavani Atelier 03 Rose Edition bag with shoulder strap would look perfect with a brightly-coloured sun dress for brunch at Singapore’s chicest dining venues—Jaan, perhaps?—accompanied by a chilled glass of wine.
The Valentino Garavani Atelier 03 Rose Edition comes in five colourways: Rosso, Black, Cerise (blood red), Ivory, and Rose Canelle (nude), and you can get a closer look at the bags below.
