For the whole day now everyone has been talking about the Valentino Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear fashion show, presented during the Paris Fashion Week. Such close attention and standing ovations for the brand’s designer Pierpaolo Piccioli are perfectly justified, because he unveiled one of the most beautiful collections of the upcoming spring season.
According to the creator himself, he drew inspiration from actresses and famous personalities of the past: “I was thinking of paradises, about artists’ colonies of the past. There were reasons why artistic people went off to places like that—so they could live their identities.”
In the end, Pierpaolo offered his fans the exotic splendor of looks from flowing tulle, weightless lace, thick cotton, capes of different lengths, thrown over one shoulder, and jaw-dropping straw hats with a sculptural quality to them.
The always coveted black, which opened on the show, competed in elegance with scarlet dresses and in infinite tenderness—with light lavender outfits, exploding then into a riot of colors, iridescent with prints inspired by the early works of Matisse and Gauguin.
