The opening of Valentino spring-summer show was dedicated to white, like an allusion to a new chapter in the brand’s history. Pierpaolo Piccioli decided to use the white shirt as a basis. The creative designer of the brand offered several interpretations at once: these are voluminous A-silhouette blouses that can be worn like tunics; dresses with airy sleeves, ruffles, mini shifts and feathers; long shirts that can be used as dresses as well as a light coat.
Later, white clothes were replaced by outfits of bright fluorescent colors - neon green, fuchsia, orange, coral. One of the sources of inspiration for the designer was grisaille, a kind of painting performed in one color. Laconic monophonic outfits turned out to be a work of art thanks to playing with fabric, adding volume and mixing textures.
Another important trend reflected in the collection is tropical motifs. Juicy prints that refer to the jungle settled on blouses and floor-length dresses. It’s easy to imagine these worn both in the city and on beaches or boats on some long Mediterranean summer idyll.
The key point of the evening line is the ease of form. Flying silhouettes, translucent fabrics, the use of frills and feathers - all this refers to summer carefree, which, coupled with bright colors, creates a completely summer mood.
