In recent years, we have seen the resurgence of effortlessly cool ‘90s style, with Dua Lipa leading the pack and channelling Cher Horowitz from Clueless in matching co-ords, statement hats, and tiny crop tops. Across the pond, Victoria Beckham has brought the colour-blocking craze back by way of striking combinations (red sweaters and yellow trousers, anyone?)
On the runways, luxury maisons like Valentino have showcased their take on the trend through relaxed jeans, bold hues and mini bags. Valentino’s new bag—as seen in its resort 2022 collection—however, takes the retro factor up a notch.
Dubbed the Valentino Garavani Locò bag, the accessory essentialises the meaning of ‘locomotive’, with ease of movement and mobility serving as inspiration. Creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli presents the design in three contemporary colourways for the urbanite: black, pink and yellow. As versatile as it is stylish, it sports two detachable handles, making it a top handle, crossbody and clutch all-in-one.
Constructed in smooth, lacquered calfskin leather, the streetstyle favourite sports a minimal, compact silhouette while ensuring practicality for the on-the-go wearer. Store your daily essentials safely thanks to a secure flap-closure topped off with the maison’s VLogo Signature oversized clip in gold. Below, explore the style in three eye-catching shades.
