Valentino Pre-Fall 2016
SHOP THE COLLECTION:
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s considered cross-cultural message continued for Valentino’s Pre-Fall labor-intensive lineup where models sported carefully sculpted Bantu knots. Here, they continued with spring’s cross-cultural current, now invoking references hailing from Japan (flora, fauna), dynastic China, to New York’s skyline, including nonspecific homage to a brilliant Milanese-New York hybrid of yore: Fiorucci. Nodding not just to Africa but to a mood of global celebration, the artful, high-gloss twists also sang to the same ’90s beat as Björk’s iconic video for “Big Time Sensuality,” directed by Stephane Sednaoui.
