valentino vs nine west

This bag called the Bow Nuage Hobo ($1195) and it's by Valentino. I'm kinda holding my breath here, waiting for the comments to pour in for this one.

It's definitely a statement bag, although what statement that is, I really can't say.

The bag itself is huge and made out of a metallic leather. The bow itself is just...interesting. But, it is Valentino....and he has his own set of loyal fans.

Personally, I think that if you are going to go for a big crazy bag, you would do better with this one by Nine West.

This is their Bow Feelin Large Shopper ($95). It's made out of natural PVC and comes in black, coral, and an (almost) natural looking python as well.

It's basically the exact same bag...except of course in the other bag, you are paying for quality leather, craftsmanship, and the Valentino name.

If I had to choose, I would probably choose the Nine West. It's actually kind of cute in a way, and much better looking in person. For the money, it's also a much better deal...considering both are such trendy bags.

Which would you choose?
