S/S 17 Influencer Show: Red Valentino

With its latest S/S 17 lookbook showing, Red Valentino has become the go-to influencer label for the high street’s current romantic boho looks – a trend likely to continue for next season.

The label’s signature gamine looks took a more graphic turn for S/S 17, as the pretty embroidered boho looks that have been such an influencer on the market were replaced with scenic seascape patterns worked as bold appliqued placements and border motifs.

There was a new simplicity and down-to-earth feel in the mix of degrade denim and naïve broderie anglaise. The wide-legged ombre jeans look set to be an influential key item along with the crisp resort sets – all with a breezy, summery feel that will work for everything from cityscapes to festivals.

Crochet knits are another key look guaranteed to be picked up at mass-market level, worked in bold stripes and pictorial seascape motifs for a simple, homespun appeal on updated Breton knits and easy pull-on skirts. Or think sweet camisole bra-tops, pretty crochet shorts and crochet striped hemlines on floral print dresses.

The collection’s colour palette reiterated the summery resort mood with pale blues and soft sunshine yellows cut with carmine red, baby pink and a grounding of a sand-toned neutrals, all worked in stripes, colour blocks and pretty, black-ground florals. A conversational flamingo print added an unexpectedly kitsch touch – a trend spotted at other shows so far this week, so maybe one to watch.

Other key looks to watch out for alongside those wide-legged jeans include the influence of the sporty jacket hybrid – seen here with the bestselling satin blouson cleverly reworked as a parka, complete with sporty rib trims. The mini shoulder or cross-body bag also seems set to make waves for another season, showcased with colourful appliqued stars, stripes and seaside wave patterns – perfect to team with chunky flatform sandals and the ongoing trend for ankle straps and ribbon ties.
