A haute couture punk aesthetic stood out loud and proud on the AW13 catwalks. Designers from Helmut Lang to Michael Kors looked to zips, leather, tartan and chunky biker boots; adding a luxe touch to ensure that their collections were more glamour than gimmick.

Valentino has been leaps ahead since launching the now iconic Rockstud collection on their Spring/Summer 2011 catwalk. Their must-have collection of accessories and footwear boasts the ultimate in punk iconography: the stud.

By effortlessly fusing dainty feminine silhouettes with the hand-applied rows of edgy pyramid studs, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have created one of the most instantly recognisable designs in the modern fashion industry.

Rockstud tote bags, clutches, boots, sandals and ballerina flats have been amongst the most photographed accessories shot by street style photographers over the past two years; adored by celebrity style icons including Alexa Chung.

New to Flannels this season, Valentino presents several limited edition RockStud Noir styles alongside the classic pieces for which the collection has gained cult status.
