Valentino‘s Pierpaolo Piccioli chose Tokyo, Japan, to debut his new men’s and women’s Pre-Fall 19 collections, marking his first coed show in the land of the rising sun.
In this collection where red, white and black were the only colors, two ideas of beauty are compared in a dialogue between perfection and imperfection, permanence and caducity. The iconography of the Maison – the ruffles, the lace, the grace, and then the flowers, the colors, the motifs – is interpreted in a wabi sabi key. Volumes are purified, ruffles are crushed, pleats are misaligned. Black and red are splashed onto prints, the V logo marks allover. In short, a whole collection of must-haves!
