Tonight’s Gossip Girl episode, “The Grandfather: Part II“, featured what is bound to be the next ‘It’ bag flying off the shelves. The Valentino 360 made its debut on the arms of ‘Brandeis‘, Blair’s (Leighton Meester) new BFF/’working girl’. The bag featured on the show was white and black; on Valentino’s website there is a black sequin version of the 360. It’s a large fabric bag in the usual style of Valentino – a deep hobo shape, topped with a large bow and embellished with sequins. The price for this Gossip Girl-worthy bag? A mere $4,895. Yeah, we’re not joking. For die-hard Valentino fans (aka, the ones who have five grand to drop on a fabric bag) will be the ones on the same wait list as Blair. For those of us who like to shop a bit more conservatively, check out the ‘cheaper’ (and by cheaper I mean just over $1000), leather Valentino 360 bags at Saks.com.
