VALENTINO: The dark side of first love

Dreams and lightness. Magic and games. The Valentino woman as defined by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli represents the true essence of Couture today. Dynamic, unconventional, at once fragile and dangerous, romantic and mysterious. A woman who makes no pretense of changing the spirit of tradition, but actually embodies it in a modern way, through forms, textures, proportions and excesses, all inspired by her contemporary lifestyle.

New shapes and volumes. Innovative constructions and proportions. This is a classic collection of day- and evening-wear, defined by the exclusive, innovative feel of its storyline, textures, inventions and technical solutions. Flared, ultra-short dresses and overcoats in formal, gauzy materials appear suspended in space, cast in fabric like sculptures.
Stunning applications of ruches – hand-sewn first on mannequins – grafts of reed- like flounces, and embroideries in relief on silk and double wool, are all a tribute to the legendary know-how of fine tailoring. They maintain the mystery of Haute Couture, worshipping its unique, excessive nature.
