When you post pictures like this, I cant relate to it at all. I dont think i have ever seen you wearing pants like the ones shown in the images. Nor am i surrounded by men who would dress similar. I wonder, what appeals to you?
June 27, 2013 at 9:11 pm
It certainly appeals to me! Military, Camouflage, Refined Denim, Leather; it’s like the perfect mix. Such a clever collection, I am impressed with the way Maria Grazia and Pier Paolo have started looking at other elements in print that could be used as camouflage like the daisies and leaves, genius. This is the type of collection that you can look at and instantly know that the quality will be worth the price, outstanding leather and denim and peerless workmanship. Once again we’re looking at phenomenal accessories from Valentino and a very full wish list for me!

I can also relate
Not only do I look to this blog for fashion inspiration and ideas, but also the collections – the men’s and even the women’s which I follow each season, offer the same inspiration !
These shows are staged and presented NOT to be taken literally, but to serve as a presentation for trends for the media and the designers fantasy – a physical manifestation of what they conjured up out of their imaginations and then presented for effect- an amazing process
For us, the fashion followers these designs serve as a great springboard to take what we find interesting or flattering or amazing or whatever, and apply it to our own dressing.
As for this Valentino show specifically, I see many many trends and specific articles of clothing that I cant wait to try out NOW !

This also appeals to my husband, who dresses like this ! He’s fairly conservative but with a poetic and artistic edge and love of military influence in clothing. I agree with Wayde’s comments that it’s a perfect collection.
From my point of view there are many men who can relate to the military jackets and striped pants, that are not juvenile nor gimmicky but reflect beautiful timeless workmanship.

This is a great collection indeed! Not quite my preferred taste but I really love the palette, and that bag!

Totally love the detailing especially in the pants but what’s the go with the Spring/Summer collections this time-are we all moving to Siberia?
June 27, 2013 at 9:19 pm
Camo? Really? Might as well shop at the hunting store.
June 30, 2013 at 1:44 pm
I totally agree. When designers borrow from the military and hunters, I fail to see their creations acting as a “springboard” for new ideas in fashion. Please leave the function of camo to those that really incorporate it: the stalking of animals and opposing combatants. Is there really a place for that in fashion?

I had to re-read the header because the colours look so Fall-like to me. Gorgeous, rich colour. Quite an interesting collection….

Not sure what music they were walking down to on the runway, but in my world the song playing as I view this is “Duel” by Propaganda. Fer sure.

Great collection! I love the all denim, and the mix of camo and burgundy!
June 27, 2013 at 10:59 pm
Love this collection. Great prints and designs of dresses for men indeed. Love the bags as well.

Oh dear. The pictures you took outside the show are far more interesting than the pictures you took of the show. Possibly because the people outside convey personality and a discernible point of view in their clothing, or may be I’m just totally lacking in imagination…

The daisy-camo pants are pretty nifty, but those green shoes are just gorgeous.

sorry the question by layman
but because they are already presented the spring summer collections 2014 it has yet to pass the summer 2013?
Love the bags as well. FANTASTIC STYLE…Great collection!

Camouflage prints do NOT belong on the runway!!
June 28, 2013 at 9:11 am
Just more examples of street style influencing the runway.
June 28, 2013 at 10:13 am
just love it!
June 28, 2013 at 9:19 pm
Looks very WW1 to me, as the models are so clean cut and, hair to the side. Adds to the military effect.

Sleek and clean collection, but I just can’t get over the use of flip-flops on the runway. I’ve noticed a few designers doing this recently. I feel flip-flops should be reserved for a swimwear collection, not to be paired with suiting separates – it sort of cheapens everything.
July 3, 2013 at 2:22 pm
Thank you so much for posting this!!! I love Valentino! Great collection :)

Obviously everyone has the right to freely explore camo across collections. It’s everywhere – I love it. But pairing daisies and camo starts to feel like the designs are entering a very narrow space firmly claimed by Mark McNairy. I did not originally read the headline of the post, but after seeing the images I had to scroll back up to see if it was something he was involved in. Surprised to see he wasn’t, after years of it being a mainstay in his collections.

I’m not a big fan of the green camo, but I do like the blue on blue one. It’s very flattering. Also, I think the flip-flops should have been exchanged for some nice loafers.
