Presenting: Fashion Week: Valentino S/S '08

Presenting: Paris Fashion Week: Valentino Sping/Summer Collection 2008

With the exception of a few new additions to Valentino's Handbag Collection, most of the bags from the Spring/Summer 2008 Collection seem to be bags that are already a part of Valentino's 2007 collection - best sellers such as the Lacca Bow Shopper and Bow Clutches cum Wristlests . The only difference is that instead of Patent leather like we saw last season, it's now available in Metallic Gold and Pink (Lacca Bow Shopper) and in Metallic Silver Python for the Clutch/Wristlet. Again, as with most of the other designers, there is use of Exotic Skins, Crocodile being a favourite amongst designers, and the whole patchwork of bright colours.

The Verdict:Valentino's usually classy designs have become unusually garish in his Spring/Summer Collection for 2008. Bagaholic Babe has always been a fan of Valentino, and yes, especially his Lacca Bow Shopper, but the Metallic Gold and Pink somehow makes the bag look like designer knockoffs instead. The one in Patent from F/W 2007 looks so much more chic. The multicoloured Croc Bags are even more of an eyesore. Overall, Bagaholic Babe rates the entire collection as a 'Nay!'
