We all started some sort of hobby during the pandemic, right? Whether you took up running or roller-skating, started baking, or just got some time to start reading again, there was so much free time to explore new activities. We weren’t the only ones, either. The go-to lockdown activity for fashion labels seems to have been perfecting their crochet. From bucket hats to scarves and even footwear, crochet is everywhere right now, and one label really representing for the crochet gang is Valentino.
Valentino Garavani’s polished luxury image that used to be coated in glossy red has been replaced by something altogether more pedestrian, but we love it. The label’s new collection features a handful of items that rely on crochet patterns like you’ve never seen before. Seriously, Valentino Garavni crochet blows your grandma’s out of the water. We’re talking knitted sneakers, bowling shirts, and hoodies.

Perhaps most astounding of the whole luxury crochet offering is this pair of crochet sneakers. Yes, knitted sneakers. And we're not talking fine, technical knit, either, we mean a full-blown knitted sneaker. Fire.
Crew Neck Sweater
Ideal for those days when it's hot while the sun's out and freezing when it goes behind a cloud. Gone are the days of removing your crewneck every time the sun dips out of view. A crochet crewneck does mean your T-shirt game has to be on point, though.
A black hoodie is always a staple but it can verge on boring if done wrong. This one features a crochet panel to the front to give the tonal piece texture that ensures your all-black fits always have more character than most.
This might be the ultimate transitional piece. Wearable all year round thanks to its wool construction. If you've got the mojo, this bowling shirt can be worn as your only layer during summer for a serious flex.
