    Default New: Valentino Histoire Patent Satchel


    I’ve always been a fan of Valentino’s extra structured and braided Histoire Satchel, so when I heard the news that there’s a new Histoire in town, I definitely had to track it down. I can spot the resemblance from its older satchel sibling, but the end result is most definitely a very different product from the original. If the oversized taller classic wasn’t suitable enough for you, then check out its more compact look.

    In the new Histoire I like all of its features, but being such a huge fan of the Classic Histoire, I feel like this newbie is lacking. Comparing this to the Classic, the braided handles look flimsy, the over flap isn’t quite as attractive, and I’m thinking small decorative pockets would have added more character to this version. I also feel like a splash of color would have made this piece more attractive (just check out the luscious: Valentino Pearlized Blue Historie) but perhaps this is the first of the many new Histoire’s that are coming our way.

    At the moment, this patent satchel arrives in an extra light pink hue (yes, it’s patent light pink), and unfortunately carries a steep price tag of $1,895, which doesn’t make sense at all since the classic and much larger Histoire carried that same price tag.

    I just feel like it's missing something, when side-by-side with the previous season..

    The new one doesn't have the dark edges.... Didn't Katie and Suri already showcase this?

    This is just okay. IDK... something is definitely off.

    I agree
    I liked the extra pockets on the previous season one...and the braided leather was thicker too.

    I think the bag is pretty, but i am not crazy about the patent leather.
    Maybe if it was in lambskin or something else

    I really didn't like the patent leather either, but the style is cute!
    I agree, lambskin would look so much better on it!
    For every fake bag you buy, you're supporting terrorism, child labor, and other cruel things.
