Fashion legend Valentino Garavani founded his namesake line in 1960. His exquisitely embellished gowns won over an international audience of celebrities, socialites, and royalty, and the Valentino name became synonymous with midcentury Italian glamour. Appointed in 2007, creative directors Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri bring a youthful and romantic outlook to the label’s couture-quality womenswear. Bohemian and streetwear inspirations alike, from multicolored camouflage and archival chevron prints to lace, printed silk, and fringed suede, bring an artistic depth to outerwear, shorts, dresses, and t-shirts. Striking Valentino’s signature hard/soft balance are the line’s cult favorite Rockstud accessories, which adorn brightly colored bags, shoes, wallets, and sunglasses with edgy pyramid studs.
