Though we may have introduced to you the REDValentino monkey motif earlier this season, this new take is seriously special and ever so sophisticated. Monkeys are printed with a paint drip effect to give an artisanal feel to some classic safari-inspired pieces. Utility pockets, stitched belts and tortoiseshell buttons give these pieces a modern military vibe, perfect for the adventurous REDValentino girl.
We’ve also added an extra-special message to some of the painted monkey pieces in the form of a life motto. The words ‘we are because of others’ are printed onto gros grain ribbons on a few select pieces from this collection to inspire you and those around you. It can also be interpreted as ‘humanity towards others’, which signifies a core inspiration for this collection: the love and acceptance of all people and cultures.
The saharina capelet is the perfect addition to any of the looks from this collection and is more versatile than you might think. The cropped length and ¾ sleeves will serve you well all summer, while the color will go with almost anything in your current closet. It can be worn open as a jacket or done up like a shirt, meaning you get two pieces in one - as if you needed another excuse to buy it.
