After succeeding sir Valentino Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli did a wonderful design job at the luxurious Italian fashion house for years. So when news reached us that Chiuri would leave Valentino for Dior we were all a little worried. Would the Valentino fairytale the designduo had been writing for so many seasons all of a sudden be over?
Turns out it didn’t. Pierpaolo Piccioli made sure his first solo collection for the brand was beautiful and commercially smart. In a new show area, Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, his solo story inspired by medieval art unraveled. Away from the countless maxi dresses of previous collections Piccoli presented a fair amount of daywear. Red brocade velvet pants paired with a crispy white shirt and the tiniest cross body bag you’d ever seen. A patent leather (Valentino)red coat worn over an airy burgundy jumpsuit. A pink layered sweater tossed over another white shirt and loose brocade pink trousers. And let’s not forget to mention that highly admirable trenchcoat inspired cape combined with a pair of royal pants embroidered with patterns of birds and fantasy vegetation. It seems like Piccioli is giving us more dresscode options for SS2017. Which means more reasons to incorporate Valentino into our daily leaves. A smart strategic move for the brand and who could not love that idea?
