Valentino Teaches Us The Distinction Between Its Diffusion And Foremost Traces


Valentino Bow Flap Bag, $1695 through Neiman Marcus. Pink Valentino Bow Shoulder Bag, $495 by way of Saks.

The same aesthetics of the Valentino and Pink Valentino handbag strains have at all times surprised me. Sure, a major line and its little sister should have some issues in widespread, but sharing signatures - like Valentino’s bows, for instance - all the time runs one of two dangers. First, the much less-costly baggage are too similar to the originals, which could imply that the "affordable" line cannibalizes a few of the principle line’s sales. Second, the comparison of the 2 may make the diffusion baggage look incredibly low-cost or childish, which might damage sales and undermine the purpose of a diffusion line (to capitalize on the cache of the originals to supply an influx of easy cash.)

valentino shoes online In the case of the Valentin Bow Flap Bag and the less expensive Purple Valentino Leather-based Bow Shoulder Bag, we’re dealing with the latter situation. Sit them next to each other, and instantly one has to wonder why anyone would pay $500 for the less expensive option.

Not that I'd pay $1700 for the dearer bag; they both appear like they’re making an attempt to outkick their protection (to use a soccer saying), when you ask me. Drop the common Valentino bag to $1200 and the Pink bag to $249, and we might need a dialog about it. As it's, they’re each slightly steep, but notably the diffusion bag. Among the Pink Valentino styles are stunning and look a lot costlier than they really are, but this is not a kind of bags.
