Valentino Garavani’s Roman Stud Bag

Valentino Garavani has introduced its latest bag, the Roman Stud as part of the Diary Collection (a.k.a. Resort 2021 Collection). If you’re thinking that this bag looks familiar, well, maybe its silhouette with the collapsible lay flat handle which rests atop the bag’s flap, is exactly the same as the Rockstud Spikewhich made its debut in 2016.

This time around, gone are the iconic Rockstud, and in its place, bigger sized studs known as the Roman Stud, with quilting that’s sparser in comparison to the Rockstud Spike, resulting in a more padded look. These changes might seem and sound minor, but it really does change the overall vibe of the bag, transforming it from something that’s edgy with a rocker chic kinda feel, into something that’s a little more feminine, yet at the same time, a little playful.

In short, it is:

a dialogue between classic and punk subculture design
