There’s no doubt Valentino made camouflage the perennial hit that it is now, with season after season of earth-tone dappled pattern becoming a wardrobe essential for most of us. And now the talented duo of Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiur are back with an entirely new interpretation of the camouflage known simply as the Camubutterly, a hauntingly beautiful print composed of Lepidoptera, with wings of all shapes and sizes in a colour palette that no one can’t love.
From RTW to bags, accessories and even shoes, you’ll find the Camubutterfly print on most everything at Valentino this season. More importantly, you’ll find the same print on some of the most iconic bags from the Italian luxury house, from sexy slings (Camubutterfly Bag, USD2590, fourth from top) to functional totes (Camubutterfly Tote, USD3710, third from top).
Expensive, yes, but then again, nothing from Valentino these days is cheap to begin with. You just need to love it enough to want to own a piece of it for yourself.
