In the seven years since Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli took creative direction over iconic fashion label Valentino, the brand has revolutionised not only the world of couture, but has also set new standards for accessory design. The creative energy of the powerhouse duo have rocked Valentino to the forefront of fashion with lucrative accessories that have become staple pieces of the world’s most fashionable wardrobes including that of Alessandria Ambrosia, Anna Della Russo, and Kim Kardashian. Having previously worked at Fendi’s design studio where they utilised their freedom and experimentation - now evident in their Valentino collections, Chiuri and Piccioli have brought to the couture-spirited fashion house an elegant balance of tradition and innovation. They maintain the message of timeless modernity through accessory collections that emphasise storytelling consistency, but also express a sense of spontaneity that constantly surprises the fashion world. This season, the signature Valentino rockstud range returns in stunning new varieties. In bags, Chiuri and Piccioli bring to the season compact pouches that cater to the modern woman-on-the-go. Unafraid to be explorative with colour, Valentino embraces street wear trends with an infusion of the traditional Valentino elegance that never goes unnoticed. A favourite of Nicole Ritchie and fashion blogger Garance Dore is the Valentino Rockstud Mini Flap bag with a chain, coming in light ivory, nero and light cuir. This elegant piece is the perfect nightwear or daywear accessory for a smart casual occasion, whether it is for work or for play. For a less strict option, there is the Valentino Flat Pouch in neutrals of nero or light cuir to suit any outfit. The compact, functional and chic purse is the perfect companion for busy, twenty-first century, travelling women. As seen in W Magazine, the Valentino Rockstud smooth leather pouch in nero or scarlet, is the statement bag of the season. With its dynamic ability to match any outfit, whether it be an elegant Valentino skirt and cape ensemble, or a street wear denim look, the character and sophistication of the rockstud pouch is t he ultimate attention-grabbing, highlight piece. A Valentino accessory collection is incomplete without the stylishly innovative jewellery pieces. Keeping with its storytelling consistency, the rockstuds also extend to the series of Valentino macro leather cuffs in the signature tones of light ivory, nero and light cuir.
