Valentino ‘Camouflage’ Accessories
I have a deep seated visceral loathing for all things Camo. This does not dispell it.
I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one.
Me too! Me too! And somehow, the jeweled camo is even worse than the regular.
Of course it’s worse, it’s a style oxymoron! How can something that is made to go unnoticed be bejewled? Ugh, Real Housewifes material.
Although the shoes are the least heinous, because it’s difficult to tell the studding is supposed to be camo.
In the words of Forrest Gump, “Oh, Bubba, Nooooo…”
the devil wears camo…so no. although the shoes do look rihanna fierce…
Nay! Really tacky.
When would a Valentino bag ever be in a deer blind?
Leftovers from the Forever 21 70% off sale at a Georgia strip mall. NAY!
Perfect for the well-to-do deer hunting lady. Otherwise, no thank you.
Eww, Looks like something my niece would buy on sale at Charlotte Russe.
As someone who grew up in the middle of Duck Dynasty country (I do love the show, though), NO NO NO.
I like the flats. Maybe the purse. That’s it.
The shoes yes. The bags HELL NO.
NAY, this makes no sense…it’s just weird
I can’t figure out the word I need here. It’s not derivative….
Oh, Pastrygoddess, I just downvoted you on accident (sorry) I was trying to press reply. I virtually unvote. ANYWAY I was going to make a hilarious joke about how “CAMPY” is the world you’re looking for.
So… Valentino for Hot Topic?
nay. tired of camo.
Camo is for white trash or the military. Period.
No, just no.
Ugh, no- as a girl from the South, all I see is cheap Wal-mart fug in all that. I can’t nope more emphatically.
You can probably make half this stuff at the army/navy store.
I realize that Valentino is in financial straits half the time, but I don’t know if Walmart will agree to the price point he’s probably thinking of.
OH SNAP! Made me snort at work!
Thumbs up! But only if they’re waterproof and cover ass crack.
DING DING DING!
We have a winner!
NAY. Not a camo fan here…no matter how much it costs.
Yuck! Dishonably discharge all of it. The t-strap flat with caviar beading is kind of cute but everything else is a huge NAY.
I’m seeing….Yes. I’m seeing what is going to be thrown out at the end of the season. I predict these items will be in all the resale shops within a year.
Shoes: weak yea. Bags: strong NAY.
Half a yay. I like the actually camouflage print on the bottom half but not the bead prints on the top.
nay. Camo works in the military, hunting, farm clothes, and the odd rebellious “I bought this at the Army Surplus Store and hacked it to bits” bit of summer wear. Adding pyramid studs and bedazzling the crap out of it does not make it somehow lovely or worthy of being insanely expensive. It’s ugly too.
Yea for first three shoes and bag. Nay for camo.
Bass Pro for fashionistas who love Vogue AND Guns and Ammo.
No. Just no. My eight year old son loves camo. I’m not paying Valentino prices for camo.
The beaded stuff is fabulous… the plain camo stuff is pure Kohls to me. Yuck but not exactly out either
No. Let’s stop making violence sexy.
And these are just ugly.
What the hell is going on at Valentino? I hate these.
I’ve had it with pointy studs, and I never liked camo.
It’s couture, right? Why does it look like WalMart fashion?
Very cheap. In a cheap way.
FUGLY! Just F’ing FUGLY!
Not big on the bags but I kind of want those flats.
Sequined and bedazzled camo? NO.
HIDEOUS. MONSTROUS. MY EYES MY EYES.
And again with the goddamn studs, Valentino? Goddamn.
I like camo, but they ruined it with the studs and the red strips. I like the pink camo bag the best.
NAY. The less fashion has to do with the military the better.
Only in my worst nightmares.
See, I live in Georgia, I can’t fathom a single reason to pay Valentino prices for fugly accessories in a pattern that is favored by the unwashed masses. And my husband. ; )
NO NO NO NO NO. And NO.
No a thousand times no.
That is a whole lotta fug.
Interesting concept, but all I could think about the studded shoes was… the opposite ankle would be covered in band-aids.
You couldn’t pay me to wear this bag…. Nay
Saw it on my phone: “No way…”
Looked at it in my laptop: “Oh. My. God.”
“CARLA JEAN, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE WHO RIPPED OFF YOUR BEDAZZLED STUDDED CAMO SCHTICK!”
We’re Floridian, and I can tell you, this shit is going to be the rage at white trash weddings and Ft. Lauderdale second-tier clubs. I need to call my accountant and tell him to BUY BUY BUY VALENTINO.
Good god. No. NO. NO!!!!
NAY. 1,000 times NAY.
OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE. There is no greater indicator for “fashion victim trend whore” than camo. I’m pretty shocked that floaty/romantic/novitiate Valentino of all houses would go back to this desperate well.
Eeehhhh. The set of things you could wear these things seems quite small, but I would guess it’ll be totally awesome for the three starlets that pull it off.
Yay! Especially since I just bought a super cute pair of camp flats from Target.
The bags with the red accents look like Forever 21. The flats are absurd but cute.
Nay, Nay, I say. Away, away with the camo-flay! What WERE you thinking, Valen-tay?
Well, if my trip to Fashion Week goes horribly wrong and the lot of us get stranded in the Amazon, I can pick the others one by one ces’t la mode.
I’m standing the minority in that first pair of shoes. That may just be because I’m more delighted at a reasonable heel height than I am at the actual shoes. I also kind of like the last bag though I do agree that the bags look more Target than Valentino.
The bags look like plastic and the shoes look like bedazzle on steroids. YUCK!
What I normally like about Valentino stuff is how romantic it can look. This attempt at being hard-edged is a big ol’ fail. NO.
That’s Hedi Slimane for you. His muse is Courtney Love.
The army bags are very Gwen Stefani L.A.M.B to me
So I can pay 70 times the price I paid for stuff I bought at Claire’s a decade ago? And it’s still hiddy? Awesome. I think I’ll pass.
Camouflage? Between what, the contestants of RPDR?
Lock-n-load. This matches my Eagles of Christ Militia Jacket. Finally a place to carry all that spare ammo.
3rd and 4th down aren’t bad –> i’d buy them in a brooklyn thrift store.
Didn’t we already do camo (and far better than what’s shown here) in the late 90′s?
FUCK THIS TORTURE-SHOE TREND. FUCK IT.
It’s enough to make a girl want to wear nothing but Crocs. CROCS. AND I DON’T EVEN OWN ANY CROCS.
Couldn’t tell the shoes were camo. The purses look straight out of the Delia’s catalogue.
Expensive ugly stuff.
I want the low-heeled pair and the flats. The purses look cheap, though.
I like studs but these are all UGLY.
I love the beaded stuff. Everything else looks like you could get it at Hot Topic.
Big ol’ NAY. Ick.
You never know when you might need your redneck Valentino camo clutch while your in your deer stand.
It’s a big NAY for me.
