In the last SS2022 fashion show, Valentino Rendez-Vous, which invaded the streets of Paris to showcase the desire to be together and enjoy the company of others again after the experience of the pandemic, the Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli continues in his re-signification of the Maison’s codes.
The starting point is still the connection between seemingly disparate elements that actually coexist in perfect harmony: between the Couture and the Prêt-à-porter, primarily, in the continuous search for a shared wardrobe where denim is paired with sequins, the VLogo sweatshirt with Valentino Garavani Roman Stud accessories, the evening dress turns into brightly coloured shorts.
The joyful attitude of The Party Collection explodes into a cheerful and extremely stylish house party: from the sparkling look to the more urban-oriented one, guests rediscover the desire to wear fine garments, where feathers are combined with lurex, tweed is trimmed with silver ribbons and the dresses are embellished with fruit-shaped embroidery and sequins.
Fashion is now regaining its most genuine dimension, that of the pleasure of dressing well, for oneself and for others. An exercise in lightness which - in going from the virtual to the real - is first and foremost a celebration of being together.
