VALENTINO SS2018 Haute Couture Collection
Tradition is a connector: it transfers knowledge and values through time. The history of Haute Couture is its reason of being in the present day.
The process condenses these movements. A creative process that is nourished by archetype images and enduring suggestions.
A natural process that transforms ideas into projects through accomplished and constantly renewed gestures.
Handcraft as a horizon and a value, nobly celebrated, captured in its moment of grace, instants before the task is completed. The poetry of the final touches, vibrant in the lyricism of the warmth of the hands, that can still be perceived.
Persuasive lightness that dematerializes and elevates. Impalpable floral motifs that settle before the last framework.
Volumes that expand, volant that quiver, feathers that vibrate on hats, created by Philip Treacy.
A typical Haute Couture, read in present times, made of bows, of glamour, of Lady Duff-Gordon Gowns of Emotions; of Andrea Pontormo’s color palette, of refined materials such as taffetas and moiré, of lace and of intarsia.
A Haute Couture of present times, that contemplates day time, the chinos and the trench, made of pieces assembled during immediate and solemn dressings.
A personal and perceived Haute Couture, intimately presented, as it used to be done.
The work of the Atelier as an art of time, a continuous dialogue between the one who imagines and the one who completes.
