Valentino SS2016

Feb 07, 16 Valentino SS2016

French haute couture catwalks are reigned by Italians: after the triumphs of Versace and Giambattista Valli and a breathtaking show of the living legend of the world of impeccable taste and style Armani for the Armani Privé, the last day of the haute couture week in Paris is marked by a duo of Maria Grazia Currie and Pierpaolo Picciolo, who continue making history in the house of Valentino.
Recreation of the atmosphere of Venice – a city, in which time stays still with its luxury palaces reflect in turquoise waters of the channels and the carnival spins on St. Mark’s Square – this was the task the designers set for the new season.
The handwriting of the duo is recognizable: on one side, flowing floor-length tunic dresses, translucent, with air pleating and false simplicity of cut; brocade and velvet, embellished with rich gilded embroidery. The color palette changing from milky white to malachite, from carmine to Burgundy seems to be a reflection in Venetian patina veiled mirrors.
Every second look from the collection deserves to be exhibited in Paris Fashion Galliera Museum: like Venice, creations of Valentino are timeless.
