The color pink is often synonymous with femininity. The pastel hue depicts love, romance, kindness or the act of nurturing. But with its ubiquitous assigned use in representing women, has the feminine shade lost its power? Valentino dares to differ. The luxury Italian fashion maison has envisioned a rebellious pink renaissance to champion the modern woman’s confidence and creativity.
This fall, Maison Valentino released the Pink PP Collection, an experimental monochromatic journey conceived by Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli featuring a custom hue developed in collaboration with Pantone. From designer bags and patent leather pumps to a peacoat and couture dresses, the line puts the eye-catching Pink PP shade at center stage this season as Valentino emboldens women to feel individualistic rather than traditional.
A vibrant fuchsia color may be intimidating for those with a more minimalist sensibility, but take heart. The simplest way to incorporate this highlighter hue into your fall wardrobe is through a single bag. Here are our top three Pink PP designer bags for women from the Fall/Winter 2022-23 Valentino Garavani line sure to command attention in every room.
Tickled pink about a shoulder bag? The Valentino Garavani Small Roman Stud Shoulder Bag is a showstopper from all angles as it’s lined with the house’s signature maxi studs. Smaller than a tote but larger than a handbag, this number offers a happy medium for those prioritizing practicality. The twist-lock closure ensures all of your essentials are safely sealed while the elevated bag is slung over your shoulder.
This Valentino Garavani Mini One-Stud handbag toes the line between making a bold statement and playing it cool. The nappa leather construction and oversized stud clasp showcase the atelier’s renowned craftsmanship, while creating a look that’s sleek and sophisticated. With an adjustable shoulder strap, it can be styled as a mini crossbody bag or carried by hand, depending on the occasion.
Embellished with a diamond quilted pattern of tone-on-tone stitching and hardware, the iconic Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike Shoulder Bag is for the woman who wants to make a statement. With a smaller silhouette, an adjustable strap and flap enclosure, this bag recalls the early 2000s baguette bag trend, but the soft punk sensibility brings a modernist edge. Rock it with an all-black look to let the punchy shade shine.
