Founded in 1960, Valentino has since been a staple in the world of fashion. With their iconic Rockstud collection that is instantly recognisable and oh so desirable, it is undeniable that Valentino is a brand that is adored by many.
From a young age, Valentino Garavani always had an interest in fashion and took a hands-on approach. Combining his bold vision and edgy influences, his journey took off to greater heights. It is not surprising to find the who’s who of celebrities rocking out in Valentino whenever they’re at events or when they’re off-duty.
Introduced in 2010, the Rockstud collection, with its studded hardware and luxurious leather, takes inspiration from rock and roll, updating any outfit with a dash of rebellion. Its release took the world of fashion by storm, with reactions ranging from shock, intrigue and admiration!
The Rockstud bags made such a huge impact that it wasn’t long before Valentino brought them to the ground – releasing Rockstud heels that became an instant classic and overnight success. In fact, it was so successful that sales have doubled!
Never backing away from being bold, Valentino’s creations feature interesting prints such as butterflies and camouflage and if you dare, the 1973 collection takes fun to a whole new level with its distinctive rainbow chevrons that inject playfulness into any outfit.
Colour is one of Valentino’s trademarks – specifically a bright shade of red that Valentino used on many of his classic dresses. Mention “Valentino red” and it will evoke a sense of luxury, confidence and passion. After all, according to Valentino himself, red is the only colour capable of competing with black and white.
