Valentino Resort 2018
The tracksuit has gotten its fair share of attention from the high fashion world—we have reached peak athleisure. But cut in technical jersey, or, better, hammered silk in brilliant shades of emerald, ruby, and pink, Piepaolo Piccioli’s Valentino Resort 2018 tracksuits look fairly irresistible. Sewn from four narrow panels of that gorgeous hammered silk, his pants swished above be-feathered flip-flops or studded shower shoes. There were also pleated track skirts, short and long zip-front track dresses with contrast piping, and extrapolations on the sporty theme that found Piccioli layering the house’s signature sheer A-line midi dresses over color-blocked leotards. Fresh.
