What V Want: Valentino’s One Stud Bag

Storied Italian House, Valentino, revamps its signature metal stud detailing as they debut this season’s must-have bag

From allover monograms to understated design notions, luxury houses are masters at reconstructing house codes for the present-day. For Valentino, the brand’s romantic legacy has been refocused through its signature stud detailing.

Featured across a bevy of the Italian house’s sought-after footwear and accessories, the stud detail was conceptualized in the early 2010s as an ode to the stringent lines of rustic Roman architecture. Now, Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli is boldly reimagining the label’s trademark for the Fall 2022 season.

Set against the collection’s powder-pink gowns and jet-black outerwear, fresh iterations of the stud emblem took center stage throughout. Emerging from the stylish pack of slouchy shoulder bags and padded clutches was the house’s newly unveiled One Stud bag.

Boasting a sleek leather facade with an adjustable chain, the accessory harkens to the early days of the stud as well as the structured accessory silhouettes of the house. This time, an enlarged single stud is the focal point of the streamlined bag—the ideal keepall for a glamorous night out or quiet afternoon stroll.

Veering from previous multi-stud designs, Valentino’s new must-have is a welcomed option for those seeking a glossy, versatile bag grounded in simplicity and craft. Without shunning its sartorial past, Valentino has re-upped its vision for the dynamic, statement-making woman, of course, with a handful of stud details to tout.
