This $4,200 Valentino Puffer Belongs in a Museum
At Valentino, what’s old is new again; and new in a very chic way.
While you may be blasting the air conditioning in your office, Valentino is thinking full-on winter with the introduction of its Valentino X Moncler collection, which debuted in Paris last season.
The down jacket comes in a number of styles: a cropped puffer with a screaming logo (the same one featured on Valentino’s new sweaters and tees), a longer logo coat (basically made for a street style star, if you ask us), and a tiger-printed long puffer, which comes in green, pink, and nude.
The tiger puffer is especially notable; the star of the collaboration: The design, rather than being printed, is actually stitched into the puff, giving you the best of both brands: the insane warmness of a Moncler coat with the attention to detail you know and love from Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli.
Another fun fact? This print is a re-edition from the '70s, which all but makes this piece a collectors item. Here, we see the same print featured on a caftan in Mr. Valentino’s atelier.
And if you can’t get behind the puffer but love the tiger, fear not. The tiger print can be seen on an amazing jumpsuit (reminiscent of the caftan above) for a different, yet equally show stopping, fashion moment.
