Valentino’s iconic dots get a little sweeter in the brand’s newest capsule collection, Pop Pois, which features candy-colored, polka-dotted espadrilles, clothing and accessories in tangy shades of blueberry, cherry and lime. Launched last December during Art Basel Miami Beach, and scheduled for a European release in Valentino boutiques this month, and a release in Asia in May, the Pop Art–inspired collection plays up Miami’s sunny, retro-modern vibe with a wink to the brand’s history. The modular centerpiece is a polka-dotted scarf emblazoned with the Valentino logo, which has been resized and transformed into flowing silk maxi tops, pajama pants and day dresses that can be mixed and matched for a seamless transition from beach to nightclub to bedroom. The glamorous showstopper? A flirty, gold-chained VaVa Voom studded clutch, updated with a matching polka-dot cover. Caftan dress, $1,290; valentino.com.
