The accessories market is bursting with exciting new silhouettes this Spring, so we looked to iconic brand Valentino Garavani to curate your guide to the essential shapes gracing shoulders this season. When it comes to designer handbags for women, the Maison always leds the way with an array of exciting shapes and those must-have details – think iconic studs, rainbow stripes and signature gold hardware.

Last year saw a glut of micro bags, think room for lipstick and not much else, but this season we’re seeing a host of beautifully styled mini bags, with enough room for your phone too. This year we predict the Valentino Garavani Locò bag silhouette will be on everyone’s wish list, available in hot pink for anyone craving a pop of colour or more classic hues including black and cream. The bag features a removable leather handle with the option to attach a shoulder strap too, it’s classic but versatile.
For anyone who needs more room, we recommend you take inspiration from the excellent Florence Pugh and choose the Valentino Garavani VLogo Moon bag. This elegant style has a sleek silhouette and a fashionable oversized design. It has plenty of space for accessories and could even fit a laptop, making it one of the most stylish choices for commuter bags. It can also be worn over the shoulder or hand-held thanks to the innovatively designed strap.
The brilliant thing about accessories is that you can experiment with new trends and for anyone wanting to embrace the new Bohemian style, Valentino Garavani are ahead of the curve. The coveted Valentino Garavani Rockstud bag gives a nod to Kate Moss’s iconic 2005 Glastonbury ensemble but is also given a softer look with a makeover in raffia and tan leather.
Another design Boho fans will love is the Valentino Garavani AllKnots bag, a chic woven shopper available in cream, black and tan as well as a fun yellow colourway. Expect to see it all over Ibiza this summer!
In terms of design trends, an iconic shape for Spring Summer 2024 is the pouch bag. These soft roomy styles are deceptively roomy and a great investment as they look great with casual and more formal outfits. We love the cream version of the Valentino Garavani VLogo Pouf nappa leather pouch, it’s a beautifully smooth design with stylish gold accents and will be the perfect accompaniment to wedding and garden party outfits this summer.
For true handbag aficionados who love a classic shape, don’t fret, we haven’t forgotten you. If your dream bag is one that could have been worn by Jackie O but won’t look out of place worn with jeans, the Valentino Garavani Alltime shoulder bag in soft grainy leather is our top choice. We love the cream colourway, especially paired with denim, but it also comes in classic black and tan too. The shoulder and hand strap mean it’s ultra-versatile and practical too.
