On the 1st of March, Valentino presented its new Pret-a-Porter collection during the Paris Fashion Week.
This time Pierpaolo Piccioli, who is a creative director of the brand, did not experiment with bright colors, unusual textures, and fabrics. Instead, he has presented a slightly demure but also elegant and feminine collection.
According to the designer, the collection represents his thoughts on individuality and uniform. The uniform always tries to hide someone’s identity, but, at the same time, helps to reveal our emotions and feelings.
The designer mostly used a palette of blacks, greys, and reds. Most of the elements were well-tailored; some pieces were made of black leather. Pierpaolo Piccioli did not forget to pay homage to Valentino by showing the public his take on the iconic red dress.
Embroidery was one of the central pieces of the collection: petals and flowers on men’s and women’s outerwear looked exquisite and delicate.
Someone might think this collection was plain, though, during the era of diversity and endless creativity, it is great to sometimes look at familiar and simple but beautiful and speechless classics.
