The Milanese label Valextra holds a significant reputation of creating beautiful and refined bags in understated elegance. Valextra was established by Giovanni Fontana in 1937. Their discreet designs are popular amongst a vast elite clientele including celebrities such as Grace Kelly and political and public figures including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Aristotle Onassis and Giovanni Agneli. Valextra bags and luggage were constantly purchased from the 1940s to the 1970s and in the 20th century, they produced leather goods for luxury brands Armani, Cartier and Dunhill.
Valextra’s “handmade in Italy” creations are known for their minimal and design-led aesthetics. The endeared label specializes in the artisan craft and finest skins.
In today’s pop culture, a Valextra design surely stands out from the crowd with its precise, lightweight and essentialist characteristics. They do not make logo-pattern products, nor embeds their “signature”. The logo is rarely seen on the outside of their goods. Yet, many still fall inlove with it and that particular distinction only Valextra has. We rounded up some of the best styles on Instagram of fashion instagrammers around the the world sporting Valextra bags. Take a look at how these fashionistas style them:
