Fun fact: It’s already been more than 10 years since Valentino’s Rockstud-ed accessories first punched their way into the industry. Inspired by the motifs on the palazzo-style buildings that dot Rome where the brand’s HQ is based, they’ve left quite the indelible impact (both culturally and commercially) and have become a fundamental part of the Valentino lexicon.
Meet the members of the Rockstud Alcove family.
Late last year, creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli upsized the classic studs to create the Roman Stud line of quilted bags while this Pre-Fall, he introduces the Rockstud Alcove family: ladylike top-handle-style bags (there are two at the moment) that have studs even on their “V” logo clasp and boast a red nappa leather lining.
Hint: There a total of 20 bags.
There are a total of 20 bags from the Rockstud family in the collage above: 13 Roman Studs, six Rockstud Alcoves and one classic Rockstud. Full marks if you can identify them all. Head to @female_singapore on Instagram for the reveal.
