NOW NEW: VALENTINO PRE-FALL 2018
HERITAGE FOR THE FUTURE
In a spectacular presentation held in the salons of an early 20th century mansion in New York, Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli reworked the house’s lesser-known heritage to modern effect. While the collection brims with signature elements such as bows, ruffles, tiers and romantic lace, it also included new prints, the VLTN logo boldly splashed on the iconic bags and a Seventies snake motif.
Piccioli’s aim is to share the Maison’s longstanding values and identity with the younger generations, not necessarily familiar with all the imagery from its glorious past. Hence, he created an awe-inspiring and aspirational balance between luxe, expertise and a sporty-cum-streetwear edge, also through a handful of tracksuits.
