Discover Valentino Pre Fall 2018 collection presented in New York on the 10th of January. Inspired by Maison’s archive, the collection explores the past with references to Valentino Garavani’s tiger from 1967, dragon from 1968 and snake from 1971.
Novelty is what one is not familiar with. Novelty is the past, if discovered to remain in present times. The gaze traces the path; the eye detects and connects. Very Valentino. Glamour. Individualism. Hedonism. The values that have defined a decisive moment of the Maison, today. Deciphering the combination to picture modern times. An exploration of the iconographies of the Maison’s archive: the tiger from 1967, the dragon from 1968, the snake from 1971. An extravagant bestiary: a change in perspective cadenced by pois, enlightened by crystals.
The personality of the looks as an affirmation of oneself. Clubbing as a frame. Present genres in the mix, in the spontaneous conversion of rules. Furs and tracksuits, dresses and boots, the nonchalant ball gown. Embroideries and logos mark the down jackets created in collaboration with Moncler. The glimmer and the volant. Rouches on sportswear and patent leather for the t-shirts. Lace on sweaters. Black that overflows and shots of decisive colors. – from Valentino
Two Down jackets have been created from the collaboration between Moncler and Valentino, under the Creative Direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli, started in February 2018.
