Even though this model looks like he is walking aimlessly in circles, at least he is doing it in style. Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection is constructed with garments that scream simplicity and comfort. There are certain pieces in this collection that are reminiscent of my childhood. For instance, the two-toned suits and Hawaiian-print clothing, all which I would have liked to have kept repressed forever! However Valentino has managed to make them fashionable and relevant again. In past seasons colored pants were introduced in moderation but today you will find brighter and more adventurous color selections. Nevertheless Valentino has decided to keep it a bit low key, using more subtle colors like royal blue and burgundy. Denim is another significant part of this collection from suits to casual outfits reinforcing their theme of simplicity and comfort.
