Colour of love and excitment, red is almost everywhere this time of the year. St Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I guess most couples are planning their evening out at their favourite restaurant, which has been offering great deals since early January!
I believe most of the girls have already chosen their stunning outfit for the night, that pick to make him fall down at their feet. Accessories are as important as the dress, so my pick for a St Valentine’s Day even more memorable is the Valentino Aphrodite bow bag (=borsa col fiocco), which is made of leather and comes with golden hardware. The bow is a detail that makes the bag so romantic!
I was surfing the net for bow bags and the Valentino Aphrodite bow bag appeared on Neiman Marcus. I suddenly felt the urge of drawing a fashion illustration for St Valetine’s Day as the name itself recalls the Greek goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite, and nothing would have been more appropriate!
The Valetino Aphrodite bow bag is matched with a pair of killer shoes: anthracite suede 12cm stiletto heeled shoes with red ankle strap by Marta Madaiva! The association of my shoes with the Valetino bag makes me smile!
Anyway, a red bag and matched shoes are The Essentials for St Valentine’s Day 2012!
