Giambattista Valli enters new territory this season with the debut of the Valli bag—the first-ever handbag released by the designer. Cutting a sleek, architectural profile, the new addition strikes the tricky balance between tradition and modernity. (Amanda Ross, DEPARTURES fashion director, is particularly smitten with it this season.)

Beautifully sized, the bag has an adjustable handle, a removable strap and a detachable interior case that helps it segue from day to night in a snap. It’s also as easy to maneuver as it is to wear; a touch lock opens effortlessly (no small detail).

Pictured here in black leather (price upon request), the bag comes in an array of skins, fabrics and color combinations, including a chic black-and-white version and gold snakeskin. Consider it the perfect genteel-with-an-edge accessory. giambattistavalli.com.
