There's no getting past the fact that the Valentino Large Petale Tote ($1,795) is a dreamy handbag. It may be the large petal detail on front that initially draws attention to this bag, but there's so much more to it. It's made of sand macintosh, a water resistant rubberized cloth and has thin, 9-inch drop handles. We're thinking that when we make an investment as large as this in a single handbag, it really is a good idea that it be water resistant.
