Discover REDValentino Pre-Fall 2018 lookbook. The collection mixes strictness and gentleness, featuring a repertoire of classics: the little coat, the little dress, the white shirt, the shorts.
Breaking the rules to make one’s own rules. Subtly. Gently. Stubbornly. Style as a set of personal laws. Convention as rebellion, rebellion in convention. Using method, instinct and will. The freedom to play with archetypes, taking things here, there and everywhere. Adding one to the other, defying age, space, time. Subverting norms, delicately. Mixing strictness and gentleness, exuberance and calm, past and present to blend a different take on romance. A repertoire of classics: the little coat, the little dress, the white shirt, the shorts. Capes, duvets, airy tulle dresses. The trenchcoat and the romantic gown. The cozy jumper. In classic shades of black, camel, cream, red, light blue. A vocabulary of textures: angora, tweed, tulle, leather, silk. A roster of patterns: botanical motifs, mannish checks, animalier spots and stripes. A zing of soft aggressiveness: studded bags, spiky heels, wild scarves. The pussy bow as a sign. Lace socks everywhere. Heralding calm and twisted classicism as the ultimate defiance. The new rule that breaks old rules. Quietly. – from REDValentino
