Valentino Apologizes For Accessory Promotion Slip-Up!
Valentino regrets their press release that Amy Adams was seen accessorizing with a bag from their Spring/Summer 2014 collection. The fashion house failed to do their homework, because Adams was carrying the bag as she attended Philip Seymour Hoffman’s funeral. Since then, Valentino has publicly apologized for promoting the actress wearing one of their new pieces:
“We sincerely regret releasing a photo to the media … of Amy Adams with a Valentino Bag. We were not aware the photograph was taken while she was attending the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was an innocent mistake and we apologize to Ms. Adams who was not aware, or a part of, our PR efforts.”
What makes the situation even more awkward is that when they sent the press release they misspelled the name of the bag, “We are pleased to announce Amy Adams carrying the Valentino Garavany Rockstud Duble bag from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection on Feb. 6 in New York.”
According to the New York Post, it’s actually called the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Double bag.
Talk about Awkward!
