A good tote is handbag 101. Every woman has one or two and we take them everywhere – work or play (especially overseas). We all agree that a tote is a well-spent investment, especially the ones you are about to see!
These are Valentino tote bags from their Spring-Summer 2016 Runway and we just can’t get enough of them. A bit of a statement, without being flamboyant… each of these will easily become your daily accessory.
Valentino styled this line with their ever-so-recognizable Rockstud trim, but each has a unique designer touch. Some are hand-painted geometric patterns, while others have colorfully beaded stripe handles.
If you’re the type who likes a little more Rock in your daily, you can even transform your tote by replacing the default shoulder strap with a designer guitar straps (see Fendi vs Valentino earlier this year). Here are some of the most beautiful Valentino totes that are on our list!
