Valentino is proving black isn’t boring with its elegant new Noir capsule collection. Just in time for the fall style season, the line features all-black accessories designed to take fashion lovers from day to night.
Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo Piccioli say they were inspired to create the new all black line because they believe the neutral hue is the “irreversible sum of all colors.”
The designers have certainly brought out the best in the classic shade by playing with textures. Lush leather and exotic skin bases, iconic ruthenium hardware, and lace and stud accents make sure this collection’s full of show-stoppers. There are large angled tote bags and retro inspired top-handled satchels for daytime use, and dramatic box clutches for the evening.
The spread of prices is also impressive. I can’t imagine many of us having the cash to indulge in the $17, 000 pieces at the top end of the range, but with prices starting at just $195 we can all afford to add a little Noir to our wardrobes.
Look for Valentino’s Noir collection in the fashion house’s stores and Saks Fifth Avenue this fall. What do you think of this black limited edition accessories collection?
