The newest installment in Valentino’s cohort of studded handbag gems is the Valentino Garavani Stud Sign Bag.
New for Fall/Winter 2021, the Stud Sign Shoulder Bag was designed by the house’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli as part of the Valentino Act Collection. Featuring a logoed flap opening and accordion sides, this new Valentino stud bag is as functional as it is lust-worthy.
I was able to get my hands on this hot new studded design in the colour light ivory.
In this post, I’m going to review this hot new Valentino Garavani accessory and detail why it’s fast becoming a must-have amongst the fashion crowd.

But the bag’s chain made up of Roman Studs is perhaps my favourite.
It’s exciting to see Piccioli incorporating these studs into his bag designs in a new way.
However, distinctly different to the likes of the VLogo Top Handle and Alcove bags, the Stud Sign is a shoulder bag instead of a top handle style.

This makes the design stand out amongst the slew of popular under the arm shoulder bags available today.
The stud chain strap is detachable so you have the option to carry the bag solely with the leather shoulder strap which can be adjustable or removed altogether.
The Stud Sign is available in one size only, which works best as a compact everyday bag.
I’ve found the Valentino Stud Sign Bag to be so functional that I chose the style to accompany me to the Valentino Spring/Summer 2022 show during the recent Paris fashion Week.
Its roomy interior and practical shoulder carry options made it the perfect fashion week accessory.
For the recent Valentino show, I paired my light ivory Stud Sign Bag with Valentino’s thick-soled rose rubber boots and wore these accessories with a preppy skirt and shirt combo.
This new addition to the Valentino stud bag family occupies a gap in the brand’s offering.

In addition to my Valentino PFW look, I’ve been wearing my new Valentino Garavani Stud Sign Bag with a cohort of fall wardrobe favourites, from trench coats and sweaters, to my trusted selection of oversized blazers.
