Valentino Presents the Fall/ Winter 2013-14 Eyewear Collection Pursuing an idea of design as a total concept, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have created an eyewear line that fully expresses the new values of The Maison. The defining elements of Valentino’s contemporary language—metal studs, stylized logo and vibrant yet sleek elegance are presented each season through couture savoir faire, creating startling contrasts between past and present. Rockstud is a square unisex acetate model with a distinctive line across the brow that has a timeless look. Two small metal studs on the frame front add a unique touch, while a heat-embossed Valentino logo is delicately placed on the temples. This frame is available in two versions: the first (V656S) is Havana acetate on the outside and iconic Valentino red inside with metal studs. The second (V670S) is Havana streaked acetate for men and black and white acetate for women with subtle tone-on-tone studs. The curvy VLOGO that offers an oversized acetate frame has a gilt metal trim on the bridge that forms the iconic V. The left temple bears a gold Valentino logo adding a luminous accent to the eyes.
