We don’t know about you, but one of the reasons why we’re irrevocably obsessed with Korean dramas is because of the fashion. But here’s a fun fact: Did you know that, even off-screen, a lot of K-stars are just as stylish in real life? Yup! Truth be told, we constantly stalk our fave fashionable celebs on Instagram to glean some much-needed sartorial inspiration. And lately, we’ve noticed that several of them have been toting around the same It bag: In case you haven’t guessed it, we’re talking about Valentino Garavani’s Supervee!
What Is the Valentino Supervee Bag?
Aptly called the Supervee crossbody bag, its most notable feature is the supersized gold hardware inspired by the Italian fashion house’s 1968 archive. The signature V-logo is front, center, and instantly recognizable—almost reminiscent of a certain superhero’s chest insignia (which, come to think of it, was probably how the name was coined). Crafted in Italy from smooth leather, it comes with slip pockets inside, a magnetic closure, and a thick adjustable strap which allows for it to be worn as a crossbody or shoulder bag.
How Much Does the Valentino Supervee Bag Cost?
Like many other designer It bags, Valentino's Supervee certainly doesn’t come cheap. Commonly rendered in calfskin or patent leather, the small one—regardless of your chosen color—will set you back $1995, or approximately P96,040. It’s just the right size if you plan to wear it to a formal event or an evening affair, or if you’re looking for a cute go-to bag for your future travel OOTDs. But if you prefer something a little roomier, which would make for an ideal office purse, prepare to splurge $2280, which is around P138,645.
Korean Actresses We Spotted Wearing Valentino Supervee:
Below, we list down some of the stylish K-drama actresses we spotted lugging around Valentino’s new It bag, the Supervee:
We love how the actress, best known for Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo and Dr. Romantic 2, wore her Supervee as a pop of color to her otherwise black-and-white OOTD. Her arm candy in bright neon orange definitely spruced up her outfit, which consisted of a white button-down shirt, a maxi skirt in romantic lace, and a pair of black boots.
2. Han So Hee
The World of the Married star had a similar styling technique in mind for her Supervee crossbody bag, albeit hers comes in a striking crimson hue that matched her cherry red lipstick. Han So Hee seemed to have worn it with a clean white jumpsuit for a casual stroll in the park, but you could totally cop her cute look for a dressier event and finish it off with a pair of heels.
It’s no secret that Park Shin Hye is obsessed with all things Valentino, but The Call star—who’s also an ambassador for the Italian luxury label—seems particularly drawn to the Supervee bag. She has it in red, too, but we especially love her polished 'fit that features a black oversized blazer and white turtleneck combo punctuated by her Supervee shoulder bag in classic ebony hue. Definitely our next workwear OOTD peg!
4. Oh Yeon Seo
Oh Yeon Seo—known for K-dramas such as My Sassy Girl, A Korean Odyssey, and Love with Flaws—has several designer bags in her rotation. But scrolling through her Instagram feed, it’d be impossible to miss her Supervee in the most gorgeous emerald green shade. The actress wore it with a chocolate brown trench coat while casually hanging out in a café. Laidback yet still chic!
