To say we were blown away by Valentino’s Resort 2017 collection would be an understatement. The inspiration—Cuba—is definitely on trend, and designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli certainly did not disappoint.
“A place closed for years in a condition of autarchy that has seen it subtract itself from the evolution of present times,” read the collection’s magniloquent press release.
Everything about the collection and the way it was presented was magical—from the venue, an industrial loft space formally occupied by Andy Warhol—to the unbelievable craftsmanship and detail of each garment. There were intricately beaded dresses that were somehow light as a feather, an entire story in Valentino red, and lots and lots of beautiful prints.
See our highlights of the preview below, we can’t wait to shop the collection for our clients this fall.
