CRAIG GREEN X VALENTINO GARAVANI

By Anthony Thuong-Seng

To celebrate its 10th Anniversary, the iconic Rockstud Accessories collaborates with Valentino with an exclusive collection of sneakers designed with Craig Green.

The London-born designer who also collaborated with Adidas this year comes with a colour palette he likes to work with : Black, Light Ivory, Army Green and Deep grey.

Pierpaolo Piccioli and Craig Green have given a unique interpretation that sees the stud come into a new guise: a sneaker embraced by a sculptural sole made of maxi Rockstud, where the stud is both part of the design aesthetic and functionality. 

Rockstud X allows a wide range of the imagination for the sneaker’s designers. For Pierpaolo Piccioli it is an open lab  that features collaborations and co-creations with international designers and brands giving their own  interpretation of the renowned “Stud”.  

Fashion is in constant quest for juxtaposition, a magnificent obsession as a conscious need of nourishment.  Fashion has to embrace the social culture of the moment of time it lives in. This implies a continuous  challenge between the surrounding and what is perceived as a possible dialogue and exploration of new sceneries.  

The collaboration, in this sense, becomes a medium and result at the same time and this is possible only  if one is keen to create something together. Cultural exchanges with other creativities becomes hope, expectation and method. 

An exclusive installation was made to characterize the CRAIG GREEN x ROCKSTUD X VALENTINO GARAVANI : a structure composed of wood and paper components entirely made of  low environmental impact elements. It draws inspiration from both Creative Directors, across a minimal design that almost  recalls a place of shelter.

The co-created sneakers exclusively launched in Dover Street Market London and Ginza on June 12th 2021, and will then roll out in selected Valentino boutiques worldwide and on Valentino.com.
