Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli took a trip to 1960’s Rome with a collection of super short hemlines and op-art prints. The opening looks (the op-art ones in question) were a parade of bright pink and tangerine pieces inspired by unconventional female artists, whose work were deeply rooted in a moment of revolution and change in Italian culture. The women in question; Giosetta Fioroni but also Carol Rama and Carla Accardi. These looks were somewhat different from what we normally expect to see from Valentino but after those initial outfits we were back at the Valentino we all know so well.

The sixties feel was continued throughout with super short hem lines on collared shift dresses and knee high boots followed by a selection of high neck draped pieces which felt somewhat seventies. There were also a range of capes which seem to be the coat of choice for the Valentino women come winter, there were floor length styles embroidered with glistening butterflies and shorter Sherlock style ones.

The collection was finished with a selection of incredible dresses similar to those at the couture show. Long flowing numbers with high waists and beautiful embellishments and delicate lace and floral tapestry. The colour palette is a fusion of greys fused with orange, red and fuchsia and green, illuminated with metallics on classic fabrics such as double wool, ultra-light silk, crêpe and leather.
