Maison Valentino : More Than Just The RockStud Pumps?

Maison Valentino : More Than Just The RockStud Pumps?

I see some fashion pieces and i’m thinking, who put in so much love and commitment and thought to this? Lately, i’ve been feeling this type of way about the valentino rockstud pumps but apart from the pumps, I haven’t paid so much attention to the brand as a whole. The Maison Valentino footwear brand is exactly why I am here today. I visited the official site and some other luxury outlets and after what I saw, I knew I had to do a post. Naturally, I was interested in knowing the creative director of the brand. There had been Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli as creative directors since 2008 but with the exit of Maria, Pierpaolo became sole Creative Director. This duo created the signature Rockstud Pumps to celebrate 50years of the brand in fall 2010. “From the first days, the most important task on Valentino’s heritage has been to accomplish the perception, the idea and the essence of the Maison rather than reproposing pieces of its archive. It has been a creative process that took as a model the modus operandi of the Atelier of Couture. In other words, the human excellence portrayed in every single detail. From the fashion shows, to the collaborations, to the stores.” – Pierpaolo Piccioli , Creative Director I won’t say I was disappointed in the collection, but I was hoping to see more. The designs pretty much followed the same pattern with alterations here and there. However, the rockstud sling back pumps remain the Master Piece of the brand. The rockstud design now comes in the rolling rock stud which features the studs in antique silver/gold and...

Closet Full Of Shoes But Nothing To Wear – 6 Wardrobe Essentials

  As with many women around the world, shoes are one of my greatest fashion indulgences. With the number of foot art being produced every season, it’s very easy to get carried away and keep going with the trend, spending so much on footwear that will never leave your closet and not finding any to wear for your day to day activities.   In building a shoe closet, it is important to start with the essentials. This may vary with every individual and can be determined by: Lifestyle Day to day activities Comfort level I like shoes that make a statement, I like bold, in your face shoes. But I’ve had to ask myself, how often do I get to wear them? It’s exciting knowing that you own certain pieces, but what happens when you have nothing to wear for your day to day activities? If you are looking to get a solid shoe wardrobe staple, there are 6 shoes I believe EVERY woman should have irrespective of her routine, style or occupation. Your first pair of each style should be in a neutral color, it doesn’t have to be the traditional black, you can go with nude, tan or grey colors. Although black is always the safest option to start with. You can build on this by picking another neutral color and then moving on to bright colors. Another point to note is the fabric, start with a fabric that is easy to clean such as leather or patent. 1. FLAT SHOES Every woman should own a pair of flat shoes, flat doesn’t always translate to boring. The style you choose can make them a hit or...
