The Venice inspired the famous fashion house is back for a great haute couture collection at the Gaggiandre, a famous place in front of the lagoon and the Architecture's Biennale, where artworks are located such as The United Arab Emirates Pavilion.
Many talented painters from around the world came to collaborate with Valentino's Atelier. Pierpaolo PICCIOLI makes this season a relevant dialogue between fashion and art. Unique clothes become the blank canvas for experimentation and creation to become custom masterpieces, available for women and men, starring the London singer Cosima for a divine vocal performance.
Pierpaolo PICCIOLI is known to be the master of colors. A rich diversity of models, wearing vivid and pure colours, in bold silhouettes. It is like watching a living painting. Red - the signature colour from the house - opened the show: a mini dress, styled with a majestic ostrich feathers hat made by the famous hat designer Philip Tracy, who designed them in different colours for the collection.
Lavender, pink, blue, yellow, and emerald take their journey through the 84 looks, giving a new sense of attitude for haute couture. Wearable as well for day as for evening, such as the majestic crinoline dresses.
The same rules for men, wearing luxurious looks: colourful and shining pants and tops, mohair sweaters, and more drama, such as the long pink floral cape on Mohamadou Diakite, one of the male models to watch.
The invited artists express their vision by prints and couture technics inspired by their respective artworks. We can recognize the iconic hands by Alessandro Teoldi on a voluminous velvet and silk gown. Jamie Nares, known for her coloured brush artworks, expressed her art on the final look, composed of a long coat and a bustier dress. Iconic.
