Italian fashion brand REDValentino welcomes spring with romantic touches. Following the design concept of simplicity, the pre-spring/summer collection also blends in elements of athleisure.

Hues of metallic sliver, white, cream, solid black, dusty pink and dashes of red make up the palette of the collection, which is to be paired with silk, leather and point d'esprit.

Highlighting neat outlines, the new pieces embrace a diversity of embellishments in details to portray different styles from head to toe. Wavy trims and laces, for example, can be found in dresses, shorts and jackets, bringing about hints of elegance.

The collection is perfect for day-to-day outfits as it offers a variety of apparel, ranging from hooded jackets, pleated skirts, parkas and pants to race-style blousons.

Don a blue jersey mesh dress with embroidered space patches, featuring a pleated dress hem, for a comfy yet elegant outfit. Or pair pointed leather punk booties with star-print all over, and kitten heels to create a grunge look.

Stealing the spotlight from the season's accessories are the new Glam Run and Red Ballet sneakers dipped in light pink or black. Both have adopted the traditional ballet shoes as blueprint exuding a mix of gracefulness and vitality. While the Glam Run high-top sneakers has fringed ribbons, the latter is decorated by rhinestones and bow.
