Valentino for spring-summer 2017


BREAK-UPS are hard. Like a spear through the heart, some might say, and there was evidence of that at Valentino this afternoon, as in the motif; hearts and swords - not as in the relationship between Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, who until this season were co-pilots here at Valentino until she left this summer to helm Dior. Theirs is valentino for spring-summer 2017 seemingly a break-up with no hard feelings; she attended his show this afternoon before flying to Rome tonight, and he attended her debut at Dior on Friday, where backstage he embraced her with a huge hug. But the split has left many wondering what Piccioli's Valentino would look like without his friend and design partner of 20-odd years. The show notes mentioned "a new beginning", the idea of "rewriting history" and the "pleasures of metamorphosis". It sounded ominous. But the answer? Well, happily, it looked like Valentino - which is obviously a good thing.

Piccioli settled on the colours of the Renaissance, a palette that centred on yellow ochre, vermilion, malachite, absinthe and umber browns and worked them into his signature romantic whisper-weight dresses; long sleeved, high-necked, pleated skirts, grounded in ballet pumps with straps wrapped around and buckled at the ankle. In addition to red-carpet winners - a whole series of tulle full-skirted gowns with fanned sleeves and embroideries wowed - there were offerings for souped-up everyday too, like those ultra long flocked trousers which looked like they were crafted from historic upholstery fabric (in a good way), an asymmetric army jacket, a stellar red crochet dress, and a magenta glossy mac.

There was an authenticity to the charm of the landscape prints - as it turns out, Piccioli worked in collaboration with Zandra Rhodes and together they reinterpreted the artworks of early Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch, whose scenes including The Garden of Earthy Delights decorated the skirts of prim silk gowns. Season after season, the body of work, attention to detail and mind-boggling craftsmanship that Chiuri and Piccioli put out here always mesmerised, but today Piccioli proved that going it solo can pack just as big of a punch.
