How to describe Valentino’s show in three words: Freedom, simplicity and poetry. As usual, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are killing it with each new collection they launched . Well, this Haute Couture collection was inspired by the exotic early-20th-century Venetian-pagan romanticism. Backstage, one of the things the designers were talking about was striving for timelessness, for eternity. The models were walking around barefoot and I love it. Actually it is a way to express how free the woman is. Also a gold metal serpents’ headpiece decorated the models’ tresses. It seems that the designers are sticking to the same dress’ length: it’s almost invariably floor-length. Dark colors and white dominated the collection and the colors: dark mossy green, deep burgundy, absinthe yellow made a shy presence. Getting a closer glimpse at the collection, we can spot the nature motif: From dragons and serpents to butterflies and leaves, all were incredibly embroidered or delicately hand-painted. The lightness was translated by a lot of transparencies and white as well. And I don’t think there is a better than color than white to express peace, freedom, lightness, liberty etc. An oriental vibes appeared through the Kimono coat and capes: All with Dragon print (Valentino Style).And the dress that stole my heart was this burgundy velvet pleated dress : Amazing!
Last but not least, with a world where racism and discrimination are increasing, it is important to always express the woman’s rights in a way or another.
