A reinvention of the iconic Serie S, the Flute bag is conceived as part of an extended collaboration with Michael Anastassiades - one of the most prominent protagonist of the international design. who applied his essential signature style to one the most legendary Valextra bags. Positioned between fine art and design, his work aims to provoke dialogue, participation and interaction.
Anastassiades rethought the Serie S silhouette, by reducing or removing some of its visual elements, giving it a newly minimal and pure proportion. The name “Flute” is given after its most prominent detail: a light-gold finish cylinder that attaches the handle and the shoulder strap to the bag’s body.
The most functional parts – from the external pocket to the zipper pull –are concealed within the design of the bag, which appears monolithic in its clean and pure sophistication. Zippers disappear into the bag, hidden under an imperceptible cut into the top of the bag. The smooth leather appears effortlessly sinuous, with a double-layered construction on the rigid handle and on the curvaceous strap.
The lining is made of grey/oyster suede, that makes the bag more sophisticated. Its understated elegance is emphasized by a special rubberized zip with a matte finish, that almost disappear in the leather. The classic Valextra black Costa finishing is substituted by a tone on tone leather piping that makes the bag even more essential, with pure lines.
The handle is characterized by the design of a light gold finish cylinder that attaches the handle and the shoulder strap to the bag’s body. Finally, the two magnets hidden inside the non-removable strap, allow it to stand in a sinuous position even when the bag is carried as a top handle.
The Flute is a versatile bag that can be worn over the shoulder for a more informal style during the day or by hand for more elegant and refined evening events. Born as a travel bag, it stays faithful to its origins proving to be a great choice even for short trips out of town.
What to bring in your Flute bag? Everything you need for an evening event or a weekend out of town like glasses case, wallets, passport holders and Valextra key rings.
