The unique combination of antique gold effect flowers and beads, and a scattering of crystals add a real statement twist to our beautiful Valerie bag. People often ask us what the flowers are made of- if you look closely at the photos you can see that each flower is actually formed of matt finish gold sequins, with tiny little gold beads in the centre. We first created this embellishment after seeing a sample at our factory in Spain, and it was originally for our Violeta and Venetia shoes. We loved how different it was, and with such a statement embellishment you didn’t need much more, so we kept the actual design of the shoes fairly simple. In the same way, we decided that a simple envelope shaped clutch would be the perfect setting for the matching bag. Made from deliciously soft suede, photos really don’t do this stunning bag justice, and it has a reassuring ‘weightiness’ when you hold it. It’s the perfect size to hold all the day’s essentials, and has a magnetic fastening to keep them all safe and secure.
You can wear Valerie as a matching set with the Venetia or Violeta shoe, or on its own as a statement accessory. Either way, what we love about this bag is that it is timeless enough to be worn again and again, but the gorgeous 3D embellishment means it is far from boring or plain. And if you prefer to keep your hands free to simultaneously drink a glass of prosecco and take a group photo, there’s a detachable metallic shoulder chain too.
Pair with Violeta ivory suede shoes for the perfect combination.
