Valentino is on quite the run. For a brand that didn’t have much in the way of an accessory business as recently as ten years ago, the seemingly endless success of the brand’s Rockstuds and beyond would make an excellent case study for any designer trying to figure out how to capture the hearts and minds of high-end handbag lovers who have tons of options. For Valentino Resort 2015, the brand is at it again.
This collection features tons of Rockstuds in new colors (including shoes, which you can see at TalkShoes), including saturated rainbow stripes and camouflage in new shades. Rockstuds will also be applied to several new shapes, ranging from bucket bags to mini flaps. The brand’s butterfly camo, first introduced for pre-fall, will also continue into spring, as will some of the scarab and gryphon adornments that debuted in Spring 2014.
