POETIC GRACE – Ever since they were named creative directors in 2007, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have been refining the Valentino legacy into an even more sophisticated point of view. Often dreamy and romantic, their creations leave you lost in revery: their signature style is easy to pinpoint and even easier to fall in love with.

For the Spring/Summer 2015 season, the design duo must have been inspired by a rebel goddess who wears feminine dresses and has a penchant for knee-high gladiator sandals. All the garments have stayed true to this muse and so have the sunglasses.

The Valentino women’s sunglasses for the new season strike the perfect balance between romantic and classic. On one side, we have retro-style frames with wildly oversized rounded contours. On the other, we have tortoiseshell square frames with gradient lenses which are also oversized. Perfectly modern, both of these designs work extremely well with the dreamy, lace or floral dresses.

As for the eyeglasses, the ones featured in the campaign have a rectangular shape and are made of a tortoiseshell upper part and a grey lower part, as if to illustrate the expert blend of classic and modern influences. Sure enough, these superb frames would make any goddess jealous. See them all in the gallery above.
