Nobody does elegance quite like Valentino. Established by haute couturier Valentino Garavani in the 60s, the house of Valentino has blossomed into an iconic global brand. Since Garavani's retirement in 2008, the house has taken direction from Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, who have invigorated Valentino with a daring modern twist. Their designs are ladylike with a punk spirit, particularly apparent in their line of boots. The Rockstud styles are most desired, be they fiercely pointed ankle boots or chunky buckled bikers. The designs are simple, but the devil is in the detail.
