Valentino, our favourite high-fashion brand with a sustainable edge, has just created the most divine collection: the Valentino Zodiac necklace. Why sustainable, you may ask? Well, none other than Greenpeace has lauded the fashion house for its “ambitious and binding commitment” to eliminate all hazardous chemicals from its supply chain and products, including jewellery.
Officially called the Valentino Zodiakos Collection, these designs feature bold, sculptural brass representations of all the astrological signs on a thick chain, with a Valentino signature stud leading to the pendant, all of which is coated in a satinised gold finish.
Shown on the Maria Callas/ethnic Greek inspired haute couture catwalk a few seasons ago, the necklace has a 48 cm drop and a length of 96 cm and is sure to become a timeless classic.
But if necklaces aren’t your thing, Valentino has also placed these sculpted star signs on their naturally tanned and dyed leather bags, which also sport SS14’s must-have detail: the fringe.
We don’t need an astrological reading to predict that Zodiakos will be a big hit with ethical fashionistas this spring!
