There are two words to describe Valentino Resort 2015: bold and glamourous. Creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli took to the brand’s archives this season, and we got an exclusive invite to go to the Valentino showroom to see the results of their work.
The Valentino showroom was like walking into a life-size kaleidoscope, with a room full of rich colors, stripes and bright-colored camouflage prints. The striped design was taken from a collection shown in 1973, and today, the highly skilled Valentino artisans hand-painted it onto all kinds of shoes. The groovy print looks anything but dated; it has been adapted to fit into the modern footwear realm with plexi heels and minimalist sandals. Of course, no Valentino collection would be complete without a few pairs of Rockstuds.
Also present in this collection is Valentino’s new butterfly camouflage, which manages to feel spring-appropriate without looking overly sweet. With a collection as vivid and fun as this one, we can’t wait to see what the brand has prepared for its Spring 2015 collection.
