Valentino-Pre-Fall-2016-Bags-6

Lately, it’s become trendy for fashion designers to eschew what seasonal fashion traditionally means. Brands are still releasing collections based on the industry’s seasonal delivery calendar, but instead of those collections being totally distinct from what comes before and after, the creative heads of massive international brands have instead taken to “wardrobing,” and Valentino was among the very first to adopt the tactic.

Jennifer-Lawrence-Valentino-Bags

As celebrity fashion endorsements go, Jennifer Lawrence’s partnership with Dior is one of Hollywood’s most high-profile; the French brand got in on the ground floor, so to speak, and it has dressed Jennifer for nearly every high-profile occasion in her meteoric rise to the A List.

Valentino-Geometric-Embroidered-Guitar-Strap

Several months ago, we brought you news of Fendi’s Resort 2016 strap line, and if you missed it, it’s more or less exactly what it sounds like: statement-making handbag straps, many embellished or finished with exotic leathers, that customers can add to their existing bags for around $1,000.

Valentino-Superhero-Bags

Iconic superhero characters from the world’s most popular comic books seem to have seeped their way into almost every corner of pop culture over the past few years, and if movies, TV shows, ever-expanding Comic Cons weren’t enough for you, Valentino‘s superhero-themed totes will give you a decidedly luxurious way to cosplay for Resort 2016.

Cultural appropriation in fashion is a super hot topic in the industry at the moment. Partly because the Internet has opened fashion criticism up beyond just the elite, brands are getting called out for their “borrowing” in situations when they wouldn’t have been criticized in the past, and not all of them have figured out solid ways to navigate it.

Valentino-Rockstud-Bag-and-Shoes

For most brands, a distinctive, successful line of shoes or bags can be expected to remain popular for only a couple of years before it needs to be moved to the back burner in favor of what the brand hopes will be its Next Big Thing.

Valentino-Resort-2016-Bags-13

By now, we know two things to expect from any Valentino collection: the detailing is going to be incredibly rich and intricate, and you’re going to find some studs here and there. The Valentino Resort 2016 bag collection is heavier on the former than the latter, but it’s still pure, unadulterated Valentino.

Valentino-B-Rockstud-Shoulder-Bag
Valentino's ability to find new ways to put studs on traditional, ladylike bag shapes never ceases to impress me. This one doesn't scream the designer's name immediately, which is great for anyone weary of Rockstuds. Valentino B-Rockstud Shoulder Bag 16 Comments Read More

We all have different shopping habits. Some people buy whatever they think they might like and return the things that don’t work out. Others impulse buy on instinct. Still others religiously wait for sales, with the objects of their affections carefully cataloged.

Did you note the disturbance in the atmosphere at the end of last week? If so, I’m pretty sure what you sensed were Pre-Fall 2015 pre-orders slowly opening up across the Internet, including Valentino Pre-Fall 2015 handbags at Neiman Marcus.
