VALENTINO CRUISE 2018
Valentino’s Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli showed his Cruise 2018 collection in New York, a city that the designer loves for its buzz, energy and cultural diversity, all inspiring elements that in some way or the other, he conveys through his collections.
Sartorially flawless and luxurious yet casual and modern in its urban side, the resort season highlights exquisite daytime pieces with plenty of fluid silhouettes in the shape of pleated skirts and dresses. Lines, from fine to bold, in zig-zags or unconventional pinstripes, embellish a crop of precisely tailored hourglass coat dresses and shifts. Throughout, Piccioli stuck to a tightly-edited palette of black, turquoise, white and shades of green. Adding that quintessential Valentino touch are the studded bags refreshed in a new breezy palette including emerald green, teal blue and white.
