For Autumn/Winter Valentino's Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by Italian singers of the Sixties and Seventies...
In their latest runway offering, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by Italian singers of the Sixties and Seventies, bringing to their signature silhouettes a pop quality, starting with Mod shift dresses decorated with multi-coloured circles that also found their way onto midi skirts and a hooded leather cape. Colour-block stripes took over, appearing on plisse skirts and delicate, lace gauze dresses, which, when teamed with patent boots, looked fresh and modern. A series of sharply-tailored capes, some in plain brown or black, others boasting birds or roses, were the perfect interlude, before the house's signature red gowns hit the catwalk. The finale consisted of a parade of majestic floor-length tulle dresses in teal, green and navy embroidered with butterflies or, in the finale look, a heart appliqué.
