Discover the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Pet project, now live online

By  | 





Dear pet lovers out here, Valentino Garavani Rockstud Pet is the special project you need to know about.


Thanks to an exclusive customization service that celebrates the spontaneous joy of our furry companions, animal lovers and pet owners will be able to personalize a Valentino Garavani Rockstud bag with an image of their preferred pet.

Illustrator and artist Riccardo Cusimano will be personally in charge of the embellishment by hand adding, on top of your pet’s image, your initials. The combination of both promises a unique product, exclusive to each client.

Three different bags of Valentino Garavani Rockstud will be available for customization, offering 5 different color variations. Another good news for our furry ones,  an exclusive selection of Valentino Garavani Rockstud leashes and dog collars, in a matching color palette, will also be available for purchase.

As 2020 saw the world gather online and gave the digital era all its sense, it’s logically online that you will be able to personalize your bag on, by choosing your preferred color combination. Your one-of-a-kind bag with the artwork can be either delivered or collected from selected Valentino boutiques.

This exclusive service has been available since October.
