For its Spring Summer 2020 Collection Mario Valentino’s heritage meets moderns trends. Catching from its historical archive, in fact, the Neapolitan maison returns to its roots keeping an eye focused on contemporaneity.
The shoes collection embodies and pays homage to the iconic 70s MV logo, the sharp angled hearth created by the very designer Mario Valentino playing with his initials. Little multicolored sticks (the classic seen-not-seen-logo) become indeed the protagonist details of some collection’s pieces, such as the up trend cowboy boots available in pastel color as well as in a neon animalier version.
The timeless classic shoes, like the high heels of squared toe, the flat sandal and the trendy sabot, are reinterpreted in a very modern way, up to time, for a woman who’s not afraid to be elegant and daring at the same time. The essential and clean shapes are in clear contrast with all the materials, like laminate, mirrored fabric and brushed calfskin leather.
The clothes collection – perfectly matched with the shoes – reflects Mario Valentino’s DNA. The innovation of this season collection lies in the foil processing technique that provides a kind of “glove” sensation on the wearer skin, making every woman unique.
