0


Pierpaolo Piccioli has given a facelift to Valentino’s signature rockstud for his new collection. The Italian fashion house presented its Spring / Summer 22 line during Paris Fashion Week on Friday, which included a range of sandals decorated with different versions of the iconic material.

While Valentino is generally known for the small spikes in his shoes, Piccioli designed flats, including a suede gladiator style, adorned with a single oversized stud. He told WWD that the iconic look was born on the doors of Roman palaces. “It’s interesting to see something that you already know with different eyes, with a different perspective,” he said.

Unique material has also been spotted on Valentino’s spring handbags.

In another flat strappy sandal, larger rock studs were used in metallic gold, and for an additional gladiator strap sandal, the rock stud could be seen covering all of the laces up to the knees. The collection also included a rockstud EVA zipper sandal.

“My challenge is to make the brand relevant for this moment without losing the house codes,” added Piccioli in a conversation with WWD. “But I don’t think you have to do streetwear to embrace a different world.”

On the ready-to-wear side, Valentino showcased colorful ensembles with flowing purple maxi dresses, fuschia mini dresses, suits, bombers and blouses.
