It was only a few seasons ago that Valentino introduced its new V-Logo hardware. Whether or not it was an attempt to steer consumers away from the rockstud remains to be seen.

This elegant, quilted design is decorated with little gold studs, the emblem of the Italian fashion house.
Unlike the Lock Bag in Small, which can still hold more than you might expect, the mini-size is definitely better suited for evenings where you don't need to carry as much. It's still a lovely design, but I definitely see fewer of Valentino Bag Sale these bags being carried than the two larger models.
Unavoidable Valentino Garavani Rockstud Lock shoulder bag in burgundy grained leather, hardware in gilt metal, one convertible chain strap in gilt metal allowing the bag to be worn in the hand or on the shoulder or accross the body. Flap fastener and locker fastener.
There are a few iterations of the VRing bag, and this line offers everything from totes and a mini cross body to the super-functional shoulder bag, which we shot in two versions. The first version of the VRing bag is crafted in smooth calfskin with antique brass logo hardware.
As I didn't get it from the boutique itself though, I'm not sure if it comes in a gift box or not, but mine came from the Biondini Paris boutique on FarFetch and it only came in its dust bag, inside the stock cardboard box which has info and stickers on it. This could be because it's lighter and makes the shipping cost less, but I would have liked a gift box for it. www.valentinobagsale.com
