Valentino ‘Camouflage’ Accessories

    • Holly Hurst Bulach


    • Kiltdntiltd

      I have a deep seated visceral loathing for all things Camo. This does not dispell it.

      • Snailstsichr

        I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one.

      • Vickiefantastico

        Me too! Me too! And somehow, the jeweled camo is even worse than the regular.

        • Little_Olive

          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.

      • judybrowni

        Regretsy Camo.

        Although the shoes are the least heinous, because it’s difficult to tell the studding is supposed to be camo.

    • Donyelle

      Wild Pair

    • kckris

      In the words of Forrest Gump, “Oh, Bubba, Nooooo…”

    • Chartreusite

      the devil wears camo…so no. although the shoes do look rihanna fierce…

    • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      Nay! Really tacky.

    • Danielle Lisle

      When would a Valentino bag ever be in a deer blind?

    • A.W.

      Leftovers from the Forever 21 70% off sale at a Georgia strip mall. NAY!

    • Sarah

      Perfect for the well-to-do deer hunting lady. Otherwise, no thank you.

    • Tamara Hogan

      Eww, Looks like something my niece would buy on sale at Charlotte Russe.

    • Susan Bullard Mayer

      As someone who grew up in the middle of Duck Dynasty country (I do love the show, though), NO NO NO.

    • Gabriella M

      I like the flats. Maybe the purse. That’s it.

    • lobsterlen

      The shoes yes. The bags HELL NO.

    • PastryGoddess

      NAY, this makes no sense…it’s just weird

      I can’t figure out the word I need here. It’s not derivative….

      • Sarah

        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.

        • PastryGoddess


    • gabbilevy

      So… Valentino for Hot Topic?

    • KTBSN

      nay. tired of camo.

    • Joe Marrazzo

      Camo is for white trash or the military. Period.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      No, just no.

    • Mary Nease

      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.

      • DeborahJozayt

        You can probably make half this stuff at the army/navy store.

    • TheAmericaness

      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.

      • crash1212

        OH SNAP! Made me snort at work!

      • Fish

        Cabela’s might.

        • StellaZafella

          Thumbs up! But only if they’re waterproof and cover ass crack.

      • Rand Ortega

        We have a winner!

    • BrooklynBomber


    • crash1212

      NAY. Not a camo fan here…no matter how much it costs.

    • tereliz

      Yuck! Dishonably discharge all of it. The t-strap flat with caviar beading is kind of cute but everything else is a huge NAY.

    • marilyn

      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.

    • formerlyAnon

      Shoes: weak yea. Bags: strong NAY.

    • MilaXX

      Half a yay. I like the actually camouflage print on the bottom half but not the bead prints on the top.

    • Jenna

      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.

    • Barbora

      Yea for first three shoes and bag. Nay for camo.

    • carolynmo

      Bass Pro for fashionistas who love Vogue AND Guns and Ammo.

    • shopgirl716

      No. Just no. My eight year old son loves camo. I’m not paying Valentino prices for camo.

    • Imasewsure

      The beaded stuff is fabulous… the plain camo stuff is pure Kohls to me. Yuck but not exactly out either

    • ceceliadid

      No. Let’s stop making violence sexy.

      And these are just ugly.

    • alyce1213

      What the hell is going on at Valentino? I hate these.
      I’ve had it with pointy studs, and I never liked camo.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      It’s couture, right? Why does it look like WalMart fashion?

    • Eovaai

      Eww. Hideous.

    • SewingSiren

      Very cheap. In a cheap way.

    • kaycem


    • BayTampaBay

      FUGLY! Just F’ing FUGLY!

    • Samantha

      Not big on the bags but I kind of want those flats.

    • marlie

      Sequined and bedazzled camo? NO.

    • Figgy


      And again with the goddamn studs, Valentino? Goddamn.

    • MandyJane

      I like camo, but they ruined it with the studs and the red strips. I like the pink camo bag the best.

    • Trisha26

      NAY. The less fashion has to do with the military the better.

    • Carrieanno

      Only in my worst nightmares.

    • annabelle archer

      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. ; )

    • Aidan B

      NO NO NO NO NO. And NO.

    • conniemd

      No a thousand times no.

    • jjfg

      That is a whole lotta fug.

    • Anniebet

      Interesting concept, but all I could think about the studded shoes was… the opposite ankle would be covered in band-aids.

    • Cameron Turner

      You couldn’t pay me to wear this bag…. Nay

    • Lindsay Smith

      Saw it on my phone: “No way…”
      Looked at it in my laptop: “Oh. My. God.”


      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.

    • OrigamiRose

      Good god. No. NO. NO!!!!

    • MartyBellerMask

      NAY. 1,000 times NAY.

    • ankali

      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.

    • j_anson

      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.

    • frannyprof

      Yay! Especially since I just bought a super cute pair of camp flats from Target.

    • kerryev

      The bags with the red accents look like Forever 21. The flats are absurd but cute.

    • NurseEllen

      Nay, Nay, I say. Away, away with the camo-flay! What WERE you thinking, Valen-tay?

    • buddy100

      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.

    • Tess Danesi

      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.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      The bags look like plastic and the shoes look like bedazzle on steroids. YUCK!

    • carnush


    • AmeliaEve

      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.

      • bellafigura1

        That’s Hedi Slimane for you. His muse is Courtney Love.

    • Natasha Dame

      The army bags are very Gwen Stefani L.A.M.B to me

    • MrsAtaxxia

      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.

    • Little_Olive

      Camouflage? Between what, the contestants of RPDR?

    • jetpackdino

      Lock-n-load. This matches my Eagles of Christ Militia Jacket. Finally a place to carry all that spare ammo.

    • Alexandra Glorioso

      3rd and 4th down aren’t bad –> i’d buy them in a brooklyn thrift store.

    • Melizmatic

      Didn’t we already do camo (and far better than what’s shown here) in the late 90’s?


    • JanieS


      It’s enough to make a girl want to wear nothing but Crocs. CROCS. AND I DON’T EVEN OWN ANY CROCS.

    • Jessi03

      Couldn’t tell the shoes were camo. The purses look straight out of the Delia’s catalogue.

    • Stubenville

      Private Benjamin.

    • mmc2315

      Expensive ugly stuff.

    • newtonGOTbeaned

      I want the low-heeled pair and the flats. The purses look cheap, though.

    • Donna Schmidt


    • DesertDweller79

      Ugh. No.

    • ccm800


    • kathrineb

      I like studs but these are all UGLY.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser


    • Sally Brownson

      I love the beaded stuff. Everything else looks like you could get it at Hot Topic.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Big ol’ NAY. Ick.

    • Kim Jong Graveetas

      You never know when you might need your redneck Valentino camo clutch while your in your deer stand.

    • librarygrrl64

      It’s a big NAY for me.
