Sounds kind of Greek, right? That’s because it is (Greek: ζῳδιακός, zōidiakos). Come on. You know I had to point that out. Greeks like to do that.
ZODIAKOS is also Valentino’s spring 2014 accessories collection, which features all the signs of the zodiac cast in rich, golden hardware (and is beginning to surface online now). I love the ’70s vibe of the pieces, especially the fringed clutches. Though I’d rather have the formidable ram of Capricorn adorning my bag (Hubby’s sign), than the unassuming crab of Cancer. I got the worst creature of the zodiac, for sure. A crab? What the?
Valentino handbags and shoes have been white hot sellers in the last few seasons, but there hasn’t been a lot of emphasis on jewelry until now. I’m so glad to see the house jump into the bling ring. Bring it! All that heavy gold is undeniably dreamy with the ethnic vibe of this season’s collection. And what superb stackers they make…I have two arms and eight available fingers: load me up.
