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. During the pandemic, fashion labels began perfecting their crochet. From bucket hats to scarves and even footwear, crochet became one of the most prevalent trends and we don't see it going anywhere this summer. 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Valentino Garavani’s polished luxury image that used to be coated in glossy red has been replaced by something altogether more pedestrian, but we love it.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 previous summer collection featured a handful of items that rely on crochet patterns like we'd never seen before.
This season, we're being treated to the best of the bunch once again with the Valentino crochet sneakers. Updated for SS22, the Valentino crochet sneakers now come in a trail runner-inspired silhouette. A futuristic sole unit adds more impact to the silhouette, with the upper now built from a combination of suede and technical crochet. Alongside the new-season silhouette is the more understated runner we saw drop in SS21 for those looking for more versatility.
