Valentino AW17

Pierpaolo Piccioli's second solo collection for Valentino may have been less nerve-racking than his first, staged last season following a split from previous design partner Maria Grazia Chiuri, but the pressure to equal his acclaimed offering was certainly on. In fact, Piccioli bested himself with a line-up that was inspired by the Victorian era by way of Memphis, thus ushering in a host of new concepts and colourways on his signature high-neck, long-sleeved silhouette.

The pink trend which Piccioli effectively owned last season carried on into this collection, mixing pastel shades with vibrant fuchsia but this time adding other eye-catching hues, including yellow, sky blue, mauve, lilac, green and, of course, black. The result was a rainbow parade of the chicest kind. Patchwork prints on billowing tunic dresses, meanwhile, saw florals, citrus slices, leaves, numerals and even hands combine to modern effect.

Dresses aside, Piccioli cuts a mean coat. Whether it's an embroidered trench, a military-buttoned coat with vertical slices or a pink cape, the only requisite is for it to be floor-length. Paired with knee-high boots (ideally in red, as seen here and at numerous shows this season) and you're all set for a very Valentino winter.
