The iconic Italian brand dates back to 1959 when Valentino Garavani opened his fashion house in the heart of Rome. Synonymous with femininity, romance and elegance Valentino was famed for his talent with chiffon and lace creating a label rich in modern opulence, patterned prints and iconic accessories. Now in the capable hands of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli the brand continues Valentino’s legacy of luxury clothing and accessories whilst bringing a redefined and modern aesthetic.
Contemporary dance and classic ballet influences come together for Valentino’s AW16 collection. Exploring imagery from Diaghilev, his Ballet Russes and 20th century dancers including Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham, the collection is informed by the expressive and progressive nature of dance and costume during this period. For Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the collection is about “movement and its happenings,” imbuing pieces with fluidity and grace, shapes are long and languid. The line-up features warm-up uniforms in both soft and sharp silhouettes; skater-style skirts, footholed leggings, cowl neck dresses and fitted leotards in blacks and nudes alongside off-duty looks; mannish outerwear, oversized knits and long leathers. Light pleated skirts emblazoned with petit triangle embroideries, mid-length roll neck dresses and long chartreuse pieces are followed by the finale of metallic fringed skirts, gold velvet frilled slips, sheer shimmering dresses and romantic strained tulle gowns with sweetheart necklines, bejewelled leather details and paired with mid-heeled ballerina boots.
