Valentino announces capsule collection collaboration with Akoni Eyewear
JUST IN time for the holidays, Valentino announces a brand new partnership with Switzerland-based eyewear giant, Akoni. The first collection will feature three new exclusive styles that embody the Italian couture touch, crafted from the finest materials using cutting-edge technology in the production.
Named after the numbers of the historical Valentino headquarters, this capsule collection pays homage to the Maison with the products called: the Paris Place Vendome, Milan Turati and Rome Mignanelli.
Reflecting not only the important places close to the House and the ethos surrounding couture, the process of creation occurred completely in one of the finest workshops in Japan, emphasising the skills of artisans who have dedicated their careers to this craft.
With the first launch focusing on three styles, the variety of the collection is seen in the generous offering of colourways. Launching with 10 different shade variations, the capsule is sure to have something catering for every taste whilst reflecting the unwavering iconic codes.
