“There is the Pope, and there is Valentino. In this city, I don’t know who else is as famous.” So said The New Yorker’s Walter Veltroni about Rome — and with good reason. Since making his international debut in 1962 with a history-making line of women’s couture, Valentino Garavani has used his awe-inspiring collections to capture the opulence and grandeur of Italy’s capital city. Though Valentino himself stepped down from running his fashion house in 2007, designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli remain true to his vision with stunning sunglasses that features lacy accents, crystals, tiny studs, and ruffle details. Even if you’re not a movie star, a pair of Valentino wayfarers or aviator shades will make you feel like one.
As any ardent Gilt-o-phile knows, we've carried Valentino's gorgeous gowns and chic separates before, but we've never carried the label's glamorous sunglasses — until now! We've hand-selected the shades we know you're going to love, from paparazzi-ready oversized frames to options with stud detailing and metal trim.
It's officially beach season, which means we're getting reacquainted with the sundresses in our closets, doing our morning crunches, and looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses. Here, our accessories buyers have rounded up a huge selection of irresistible, statement-making shades: Choose from round frames, aviators, retro-cat eyes, and cool studded options, just to name a few.
Designer shoe aficionados, this one's for you. We've put together an array of classic pumps, snazzy platforms, and pretty sandals by some of our favorite names, with options ranging from classic (for the 9 to 5) to playful (for summertime parties). Step it up a notch with a bold printed tote and a chic scarf, also featured here. The best part? They're all up to 70 percent off. Better snag them before we do!
