Limited Time: Valentino Camouflage Spring 2013 at Jeffrey New York
After launching in Milan last month, Valentino took their original camouflage to the Jeffrey Store in Manhattan during for a little soirée and a few days of exclusive retailing. The interpretation of the historic camouflage print is based upon a technological-couture process in which fabric is cut and heat-bonded and then overprinted with different elements to obtain a three-dimensional textured effect that changes with the light. There’s some play with color too—lighter panels affixed to darker ones and pops of eggplant—to beautiful effect. The robust collection consists of men’s parkas, trenches, motorcycle jackets, pants, and knitwear, totes, small leather goods, sneakers, and loafers and will sell exclusively at Jeffrey until February 20th. There’s a women’s version coming this spring. Despite happening in the thick of one of the worst blizzards New York Fashion Week has seen in recent memory, the fashion elite and celebrities came out to celebrate. Check out the collection and some party pics after the jump.
