Chain Reaction: The New Valentino Garavani Accessories Are Modern-Day Staples

Subversively stylish.

Right now, we’re in a new era of self-expression.

Thanks to a fresh outlook on the world after two years of lockdowns, the stylish set have a new ‘devil-may-care’ attitude when it comes to dressing: it’s all about expressing ourselves, feeling comfortable, and embracing what makes us unique when it comes to our style.

This distinctively different take on fashion is embodied by Maison Valentino’s new family of Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain accessories.

Think timeless classics (like statement loafers) with a subversively edgy twist, all inspired by a British rocker attitude, that celebrate creativity, boldness and style.

Versatile enough to be worn to suit any style, but with a distinctive aesthetic designed to stand out, here’s why we’re adding these ‘must-haves’ to our wardrobes right now.

Meet the Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain

What started as a jewelled detail on a chain choker necklace has now become a signature element of Maison Valentino’s aesthetic, with the iconic VLogo Chain detail now featured across Valentino Garavani accessories, like shoes and bags.

The chain detail gives accessories a seasonless spirit.

Part of the Valentino Promenade Fall 2022 womenswear collection, the Valentino Garavani accessories have already gained popularity, with celebrities like Emma Roberts donning the Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain loafers.

The Perfect Blend of Classic & Punk

Among the newly released accessories are the Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain loafers, the genderless design inspiring a British Rock feel.

Shiny leather—entirely hand-made— is paired with an antique brass VLogo chain ornament detail, giving the Valentino Garavani shoe a classic, but contemporary touch.

Available in white, ruby wine, antique brass and black (which also come with a dark ruthenium-plated VLogo chain ornament) the smooth leather sole is hot-stamped with the Valentino Garavani logo.

The versatile Valentino Garavani loafers can be styled to suit any soul—pair with high socks and maxi skirt for a modern take on femininity, or embrace collegiate androgyny with a casual, loose-fitting suit set.

Breaking Chains: Your New Must-Have Bag

Every fashionista needs a signature bag, and the Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain shoulder bag has already made the ‘must-have’ list.

A seasonless classic with an elongated seventies silhouette, the soft, hobo-inspired rounded design is in stark contrast to the bold VLogo chain choker accents, exuding a rock attitude.

Sleek and minimal, but still able to stand-out, the Valentino Garavani shoulder bag has been constructed sans buckles, with a flap design and magnetic closure. With a leather shoulder strap, the bag comes in two sizes—large and small—and in a colour palette that includes classic black and ivory, as well as red, antique brass and bronze.
