VALENTINO ACCESSORIES ARRIVE IN BROWN THOMAS
Valentino’s dresses, shoes and accessories are favourites among the ‘young, upcoming actress’ set. His patent, studded, pointy-toed ‘Rockstud’ shoes are owned by Alexa Chung and any other hot young thing you care to mention.
Brown Thomas already stocks Valentino shoes and, for this season, it has added the accessories. While some brands’ stud offerings look cheap and nasty by this stage, Valentino’s, as seen on this bag, left, still work, probably because the label was the first to do the studs look. And it’s doing it on luxurious, pretty, often nude-pink-coloured items, rather than on cheap leather bomber jackets. Left: Bag €1,320, Valentino, available in Brown Thomas Dublin and Cork
