So I have never really been much of a fan of Valentino’s Rockstud (I know I’m speaking way too soon because HELLO Fendi!) even though it’s got its own dedicated fan base and celeb-following. But I guess I couldn’t imagine how a backpack rocking the studs would look and actually? It looks quite nice. So whether you’re already a lover of the Rockstud or only planning to dip your toes in Valentino’s extensive fashion heritage, I’d urge you to have a look at the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Backpack via SSENSE.
Available in a grained calfskin version in deep taupe and an embossed calfskin version in pink powder, this backpack features burnished edges in black and the house’s cult-favorite signature pyramid studs throughout.
You can carry it via the detachable carry handle with lanyard clasp fastening at top, or the twin adjustable leather shoulder straps and honestly, I’d prefer the former because backpacks on the back make you look like a mule.
Embellished further with a gold-tone logo stamp at face and pale gold hardware, this rucksack is secured by a foldover flap with magnetic fastening and drawstring closure at throat, which opens to a zippered pocket, patch pocket, and leather logo patch at the tonal suede-lined two-compartment interior.
Measuring approximately 9″ length by 10.25″ height, this backpack thankfully doesn’t scream “I’M CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON MY SHOULDERS” and may even give you Cher-from-Clueless vibes for $2290 USD.
