Valentino’s Camouflage Capsule Collection

It is safe to say that the pieces in Valentino’s new Camouflage capsule collection will do anything but blend into their surroundings. The Valentino Garavani Lock bag ($1,995) pictured here, as well as totes, sneakers and sweet espadrilles, all go under cover, thanks to the label’s creative approach to the trend. To get the 3-D textural effect that the pieces display, materials were heat bonded and overprinted with various elements, resulting in a look that morphs in the light. For those wanting an even more glamorous edge, a small stash of studded shoes (two flats, two heels) and bags (two sizes of the VaVa Voom handbag) come bedecked with Swarovski crystals in an abstract camouflage pattern. Try hiding that. Available at Valentino boutiques worldwide and select retailers; valentino.com.
