Studly Valentino

With its opulent red-carpet heritage, the house of Valentino has never been particularly rock ’n’ roll. This Spring, however, the label’s creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, dabble in street culture with the launch of Rockstud, a hand-crafted, stud-lined bag with an adjustable strap that will take you back to the renegade days of CBGB. Of course, Valentino’s version, peppered with metal and made with calf’s leather, is a bit more decadent than anything you’d find on East Village punks. More info at
