Valentino Leopard Side Bow Shopper

After extolling the virtues of all things Valentino yesterday, I must tarnish the designer's good reputation of creating classic, elegant handbags with this next review. Why oh why did this "hag bag" see the light of day? The Valentino Leopard Side Bow Shopper is a serious affront to anyone that takes handbag design seriously.

Crafted from leopard-printed pony hair (!), this shopper, measuring 15.5 x 14 x 7, is a wasted handbag. It features a slew of embellishments that boggle the mind and numb the senses - large leopard print bow, gold-tone hardware, bright red logo plate and matching interior lining. The usual double top handles, magnetic snap closure and inside zip pocket are all there. A giant disaster that reminds me of a trip to the zoo and not a shopping trip to the local mall.

The worst part of this bag is not its' garish print or exaggerated bow - it's the price tag! The Valentino Leopard Side Bow Shopper is available for an egregious $2495 via Saks Fifth Avenue.
