Having seen numerous interpretations of the camouflage trend at Pitti Uomo, it should come as no surprise that storied brand Valentino is getting in on the act with an inspired collection for Spring/Summer 2013. Realized on clothing, bags, leather accessories and camouflage-laden shoes, the camouflage technique is obtained from laser-cut leather or fabric, heat-sealed and then printed for a mimetic army effect. While one might think Valentino is late to the party when it comes to the all-over print, it was Valentino Garavani himself that first used camouflage in an early ’90s haute couture collection staged in Paris.
