Pierpaolo Piccioli is no stranger to envisioning and creating an It-accessory. Over the course of the Italian fashion designer’s tenure at Valentino, he has perfected the recipe for covetable shoes, bags and fashion jewellery with considerable ease. His vision for the luxury house’s spring/summer 2024 collection—hosted at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris—was no different. Hosted against a backdrop of FKA Twigs’ vocals, contemporary dancers and nude sculptures, runway favourites such as Kaia Gerber, Vittoria Ceretti, and Adut Akech embodied Valentino’s poetic essence for the season.
With an emphasis on casual ease and urban appeal, Valentino’s spring/summer 2024 focuses on an assortment of formal-meets-airy ready-to-wear, from structured short dresses to crisp white shirts. Accenting a palette of clean-cut coats, cashmere skirts and classic blazers were cornerstones the maison has become well-known for, such as embroidery and macramé. This same mastery can be seen in the collection’s accessories, with one of its newest pieces being the Valentino Garavani VLogo Moon bag.
Dubbed a star of the season, the Valentino Garavani VLogo Moon bag is fashioned after the silhouette of the crescent moon, paying homage to its fantastical and spiritual beauty. Constructed out of soft stampa alce leather, the compact carry-all is also easily recognised by its striking metal chain and VLogo emblem, which allows for it to be toted in playful and innovative ways. Boast it as a shoulder bag for daytime meetings; rest the dynamic VLogo on your wrist for a sophisticated nighttime accent and transform it into a crossbody by simply attaching its leather strap. With a buttery and pliable soft grain leather finish, expect a fuss-free addition to your ensemble. Available in extra large and small iterations, show off the playful accessory in a vibrant yellow, deep red, playful blush and classic black.
Looking to style this It accessory with ease? Try it out for size with a casual T-shirt and jean combination or an eye-catching blazer and skirt pairing as seen on the runways. Either way, you’re bound to make a statement.
