Browsing around Liberty of London last weekend, I realised my enduring infatuation with Valentino sneakers. Leading the sneaker and sports luxe maxi trend that has been running for a couple of seasons – and set to continue – their retro-runner profile combined with innovative combinations are incredible. These AW14 shots by controversial photographer Terry Richardson have that distinctive hue that bot only highlights the studded detail on the heal, the colour and material combination as well as the great tattoos on the models arm. Under Mr Valentino himself, having such fringe images would have been discarded but since his departure, the house has taken a new turn. With an emphasis on dress-casual, the styles designed by Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli reflect the modern man and a huge hint of desire.
