Valentino Glamorous Tote

This Valentino tote is about as "glamorous" as having a root canal. In other words, it's the complete opposite of glamorous. A glamorous bag would have a timeless feel and sophisticated vibe to it. You know what I mean, right? A glamorous bag would look like the designs we were treated to when Mr. Garavani was still the creative director. Before he retired and his namesake label was taken over by talentless hacks. Before the dark times...

The Glamorous Tote, with its floral motif, various textures, appliques and embroidery, is the stuff that Valentino Garavani's nightmares are made of. It's actually quite sad to see what has happened to the once impeccable label. For $2800, you can own this hot mess of a bag or you could donate the money to a special fund in the hopes we can send the new designers at Valentino back to school. They really need a refresher course in design 101 - make certain your designs aren't ridiculously priced, style-less bombs.

Valentino Glamorous Tote available exclusively (well, thank goodness for that) at Net-A-Porter

    I actually like most of Valentino's ridiculous bags, but this one is hideous. The prices are always ridiculous. Everytime I see one I can't help but think that they are designing specifically for Beyonce, but I've never seen her carry one.
