Because men (and women) can’t live on fashion alone these days, luxury brands have gone one step further with lifestyle accessories to fill in those gaps for those who only want everything branded and logo-ed. Case in point? Valentino’s foray into the athleisure trend has shown tremendous appeal and success, with pop-ups all over the world selling exclusive merchandise that carry the bold and graphical VLTN logo.
An abbreviation of Valentino (sans vowels), the VLTN collection includes cool pieces like baseball caps, chunky sneakers, logo tees, rubber slides, and yes, even basketballs and yoga mats. Not kidding.
Shown above, the VLTN Basketball (USD140) isn’t your regular orange ball, but rather a chic black rendition that’s done in collaboration with Spalding and finished with the VLTN logo. The VLTN Yoga Mat (USD100), on the other hand, will put any Lululemon or Lorna Jane yoga mat to shame.
Available only online via Valentino, shipping costs an additional USD37, so grab a friend, or two, to make shipping costs worthwhile. You could also hit Mr Porter while you’re at it and grab those VLTN Printed Rubber Slides for approximately SGD415 as well. And complete the look.
