Valentino’s New Unisex Capsule Collection A Perfect Imperfection
“Rockstud Untitled” collection for pre-fall keeps it classic with wardrobe staples—crew neck sweaters, grey t-shirts, beige trench coats, white sneakers—and refashioned them with Valentino’s signature gold studs. It’s within these stud details that fuses the fashion house’s luxury sensibility and the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-sabi, the inspiration behind the project. Wabi-sabi, which translates to perfect imperfection, takes the traditional form of stitching and reimagines it by deconstructing the garment and binding them together with the stud details. Each piece in the collection is only identifiable by a progression of numbers, marked from 1 to 12, on canvas satchels attached to the garment.
Although, the minimal collection is a stark departure from Valentino’s usual offerings of romantic gowns and dramatic haute-couture, the detailing and craftsmanship in each piece elevate these classic essentials. It’s a welcoming change for an everyday ready-to-wear look, proving that stripping back doesn’t mean you need to compromise.
Previously launched in April at other fashion capitals, including Milan, Rome, London and New York City, Thai customers can now pick up the new collection at the Valentino flagships at Siam Paragon and Emquartier.
