Women’s bags for the spring summer 2024 season: the new Valentino Garavani models

In the world of fashion, spring is synonymous with new collections and, of course, for lovers of luxury accessories, it is the perfect time to discover the new models of women’s designer handbags that will be the stars of both this season and the summer.

To do this, we peeked on the catwalks of the most important Haute Couture shows, where the fashion innovations that will set trends are unveiled as world premieres. When it comes to bags, there are many new entries, some confirmations and many important returns, with collections that continue to amaze with their refined non-conformism, including studs, quilted leather and fabulous nuances, such as the Valentino Garavani bags, true works of art, capable of reinventing classic models and twisting even the most traditional designs in a modern key.

Clutch bag

If there is one bag model that has been all the rage on the catwalks and has been proposed by all the world’s leading designers, it is the clutch bag. A super feminine accessory, small in size, whose shape originally resembles that of a wallet, only to be reinterpreted in larger versions and embellished with jewels, sequins, rhinestones, studs and precious stones. In the spring-summer season of 2024, this typical evening bag, suitable for the most elegant occasions and to be carried exclusively by hand or under the arm, becomes a mini bag that is also ideal for everyday outfits, in fresh and lively shades. Among the models that have conquered the catwalks of the major fashion weeks are the round clutch bags, the unprecedented circular bags that can be worn on the shoulder, cross-body or hand-held thanks to the removable leather handle and shoulder strap or in the very luxurious metal and rhinestone or Swarovski® crystal version by Valentino Garavani. From the same Maison, the Valentino Garavani Rockstud23, the iconic bag with pyramid shaped studs that comes in bright, vibrant and gritty shades for cheeky looks and outfits with a soul that is both punk and chic. Owning such a bag is every woman’s wish.

Shoulder bag

Mini and discreet, or maxi and comfy, shoulder bags continue to be the most popular accessory even in spring-summer 2024, with the advantage not only of being feminine and trendy, but also of being able to comfortably carry everything you need. A bag that, in recent years, has conquered the fashion world, becoming a protagonist on the catwalk practically during every season. Among the re-editions of cult models, innovative versions in terms of design and materials and special proposals with chain straps, gold inserts and decorations rich in rhinestones and luxury details, shoulder bags continue to be a trend. Among the most sought-after models, Valentino Garavani Locò bag, in its small and medium version, confirms its place at the top of the list: made of soft, smooth, lacquered leather and featuring distinctive details that give it a bold, modern allure and a style inspired by the ’90s, this bag takes the retro factor to the next level. Also very cool is the elongated, parallelepiped version, which is highly in vogue this season, to be embraced and combined with looks with a distinct retro feel. Let’s take a closer look at why this bag continues to set trends.

Valentino Garavani Locò shoulder bag

The Valentino Garavani Locò bag is an essential and functional bag that evokes the idea of movement and contemporaneity. Proposed in a cool, compact design, it has a minimalist appeal and a distinctly urban style, with a retro appeal and distinctive details that make it bold and perfect for practically any occasion. The small shoulder bag comes in three different versions: in leather in contemporary city colours (black, green, ivory, ultramarine blue, pink and Powder Rose), in metallic leather with a cracked effect and antique brass finish, and in raffia (with jewelled logo or embroidered profile). The Valentino Garavani Locò bag is designed in new feminine and romantic pastel shades, with the possibility to detach the handle, transforming the shoulder bag into a clutch, giving it perfect versatility. Then there is the micro version with chain, and new models in more eye-catching declinations (for example, the new Toile Iconographe pattern, embroidered with metallic leather and Swarovski® covered VLogo Signature, with rhinestone, with shaded effect embroidery, etc.). The Valentino Garavani Locò bag represents the ultimate expression of urbanity and feminine madness and becomes an elegant and very chic accessory that will set trends this Spring Summer 2024.

Hobo bag

When talking about evergreens, we cannot fail to mention the hobo bag, a model that combines elegance and retro charm and which changes and renews itself season after season, while remaining a must-have that has driven celebrities around the world crazy. It is a soft bag with a crescent shape, versatile and perfect for both a casual daytime style and more sophisticated evening outfits. In spring summer 2024, the mini hobo is definitely one of the most popular sizes, with the trend of wearing it as a second bag in combination with a handbag or as a luxury accessory for more chic outfits, but the hobo in a maxi version is also arriving, ready to amaze and give fashion a new look. So what is the model that will be the talk of the town and that all women will want to have? The Valentino Garavani VLogo Moon bag features a “wedge moon” silhouette with a chain handle to be worn like a bracelet, available in three different sizes (mini, small and normal) and in the new entry in maxi, in a series of couture shades ranging from yellow to red, passing through basic black and elegant powder.

Woven bag

Summery, light and very basic: the trend towards woven bags as the top accessory for spring summer 2024 is now unstoppable. The handmade bags are winning over every woman with their high level of tailoring, meticulous workmanship and very special weave. At the same time simple and sophisticated, this season’s woven bags are colourful, retro, elegant, minimal or enriched with luxury details and come in many different versions and sizes. The must-have model in your wardrobe? The new Valentino Garavani AllKnots bag. Entirely handcrafted in raffia with a tone-on-tone enamelled Signature VLogo detail, circular handles and an internal nappa leather drawstring clutch that can be removed and used separately, the Valentino Garavani Allknots bag comes in two versions, a tote and a new hobo shape and is available in natural colours (ivory, cappuccino, cedar yellow and black). A true haute couture masterpiece that becomes a work of art to be worn to be beautiful on any occasion.

Bucket bag

When it comes to fashion trends, the bucket bag is ever-present: capable of being feminine and trendy and, at the same time, practical and vintage, it represents the timeless accessory that constantly climbs the trend charts of the season. In spring summer 2024, it will be back again, in incredible versions and unprecedented proposals. From models in shiny leather or suede to the highly original nylon or wicker ones that immediately catch the eye, to models revisited in a modern key, up to the more contemporary metallic or decorated in a rock style, such as the bucket bags signed by Valentino Garavani, in garnet leather with studs and metal parts with a platinum finish or in metallic leather with light gold coloured metal details. Whatever the choice, bucket bags will experience a real revival in 2024 and will once again establish themselves as must-haves for every fashionista and style lover.
