Power Pieces: Valentino Rockstuds
Kicking off our Power Pieces series - the must-have essentials for every fashion fan's wardrobe, it has to be the much-coveted Valentino Rockstud...
With its cult following and regular red carpet outings, who knew that those tiny pyramid studs stepping out onto the Valentino Fall 2010 runway on caged slingback pumps would go on to achieve such cult status so many seasons on. Adored by A-listers and the style savvy, the staying power of the Rockstud pump has to be its versatility - it is quite simply the go-with-any-outfit shoe. Ingeniously reimagined each season in a tempting array of colourways, heel heights and textures, when it comes to topping the shoe chart, the Rockstud rules.
And of course, those sparkly studs aren't just exclusive to the pump. The Rockstud has become a complete footwear family, scattered across sandals, espadrilles, pointy-toe flats, biker boots and even flip-flops. Play matchy-matchy with a Rockstud bag, from the shopper to the mini lock bag.
While every wardrobe should have a pair or two of the classics, check out even more Rockstud treats with our edit...
