It Bag: Gucci’s Spring 2019 Runway Show

Valentino Velvet Bag

This fall, Valentino gave us a treat with its new Rockstud bag: The Valentino No Limit Bag. Like the Rockstud bags of the past, I loved this bag immediately when I saw it, and when Valentino sent us options to shoot, I was super intrigued by the velvet version.

The studs are not too big, nor are they too small—they’re just right! The studs lining the bag...
