From Punk to Pearls T-shirt: A Fashionable Nod to Valentino

Greetings, my fashionable sewing friends. I am an avid fashion and textile hunter. I am always trying to hunt down designer items from around the world that have interesting details, amazing fabrics, and unique overall looks. Runway items to vintage, the search never ends. I am happy to share these details and encourage fellow fashion and sewing lovers to run with the ideas in their own ways.

I want to present a cool idea hailing from the fashion house of Valentino. This item is from a past collection, but it is a seasonless, unisex design concept. I guarantee the idea will get you thinking. Plus, I know from personal experience that friends will find it stylish and will want you to make them one, too. So be ready.

Valentino T-shirt treatment

This post-pandemic world seems focused on comfort. We’re seeing more casual outfits, making a hip T-shirt a must-have. Paired with a black leather biker jacket or tailored blazer, a T-shirt is acceptable for just about any situation these days. It can be worn from work to cocktails with friends. Plus, this easy T-shirt treatment amps up the cool factor.

The concept of this Valentino design is to cut the collar band in half and use the remaining half as a hollow casing to hold something decorative like a necklace.

Let your mind run wild with imagining all the fun stuff you can run through the casing—there are chains, necklaces, leather, pearls, and more. Spice up a rock T-shirt for a night out, or use pearls on that cute petal-sleeve tee for a nice go-to-brunch or work look.
