    Default Valentino Patchwork Croc Dome bag

    Valentino Patchwork Croc Dome bag
    Here we go again with another famous designerís pricey patchwork creation. Though I must say that this bag is actually somewhat appealing, especially when compared to some of the others that Iíve seen in the recent past. And when I say "others", I'm referring to those denim patchwork bags by Louis Vuitton that had caused fashion frenzied responses by many, including the "Tribute" bag outrageously priced at $52k.


    So, how much exactly are we looking at for this one? Well, with only a third of the cost of the LV's Tribute bag or the price of a new car, this handbag rings up at $18,900. The price tag on this piece obviously does not fit into the finances of the average consumer, making it a member of the "unobtainable club" in fashion and exclusive to the elite. But, despite it's extravagant price, this bag is nothing short of exotic as it is constructed from Caiman Fuscus crocodile with diverse textures and assorted colors, making each and every one unique.


    Purse-wear made from croc, or embossed croc leathers have always appealed to me. I'm a huge fan of animal print such as croc, snake and especially ostrich when it comes to sporting hot exotic arm-wear. But back to Valentino's Patchwork Dome bag. Like I said, I admire the croc and the various colors, though I feel it is too gaudy with the gold trim. In my opinion, I think that the bag would be much more lovely if the handles and trim matched one of the displayed colors on the bag or were constructed of vachetta leather. Aside from the steep cost and gold trim, this bag is fairly nice in my opinion.


    The Patchwork Croc Dome bag by Valentino is ready for pre-order for this upcoming summer..

    Ohh. Read that by mistake (sleep does wonders to the human comprehension). But yeah, $18K for a bag is too much.
