If you’re a fan of Valentino’s Rockstud shoe styles, then you’ll probably love the Italian fashion house’s newest collection.
Inspired by beloved DC Comics heroine Wonder Woman, the Rockstuds are replaced with a sprinkling of stars and circular studs for a cheeky take on the brand’s coveted silhouettes.
According to a release from Valentino, creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli wanted to pay “tribute to all women, for their capacity of continuously balancing many things in life.”
To celebrate the collection, Valentino has tapped Italian artist Solo — known for his takes on superheroes — for a live installation at its Fifth Avenue location. Solo will be painting a mural there today through Friday and has already painted murals at Valentino flagships in Milan and Rome.
The collection features lace-up sneakers done in leather and denim, another pair of sneakers with a spattering of red and gold stars, ankle booties and the classic Rockstud flat and block-heel sandal silhouettes with stars and studs.
