Valentino Pre-Fall 2017
Pierpaolo Piccioli is embarking on a journey as the sole creative director of Valentino, having worked side by side with Maria Grazia Chiuri for 17 years. In a preview ot the brand’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection, he called New York “the land of opportunity, a place where dreams come true,” and he promoted the show on Instagram with evocative shots of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. On the soundtrack, Nina Simone sang, “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life. . . and I’m feeling good,” for anyone who didn’t get the message.
