Valentino Handbags
A Valentino handbag sale makes it easy to own a classic luxury brand handbag by one of the world's most celebrated fashion designers. Best known as simply Valentino, the brand is synonymic with Valentino Red, movie stars, royalty, and the dress Jackie Kennedy wore when she wed Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis.

It is fashioned of metallic textured leather and has a detachable chain shoulder strap. The interior is soft, pink suede. The Demilune Small Trapeze Leather Tote in Dusty Blue has two rolled top handles with a row of platinum-finished rock studs. Coordinating suede lining adds a touch of luxury.

Valentino Garavani was born in 1932 in Voghera, Italy. The young Garavani studied fashion designing at a young age in Paris at the École des Beaux-Arts and the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. He began his career as an apprentice for Jean Dessès and Guy Laroche. By 1959 he had started his own fashion line in Rome. He gained popularity quickly for his red dresses. He met architecture student Giancarlo Giammetti in Rome in 1960. Giammetti became Valentino's life and business partner. They created the Valentino Spa together which grew into an internationally recognized brand. In 1962 Valentino made his international debut at the Pitti Palace in Florence. The widely successful showing attracted the attention of elegant, upper-class women from around the world. Valentino won the coveted Neiman Marcus Fashion Award in 1967.

Over the years, Valentino's primary lines have been Valentino, Valentino Roma, Valentino Garavani and R.E.D. Valentino. Their loyal clientele has included Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie Onassis and Queen Paola of Belgium. A Valentino handbag sale makes it possible to be included in this prestigious list.
