Discover Valentino Resort 2019 collection presented in The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU on May 22, 2018. Designer Pierpaolo Piccioli took the inspiration from the streets of Rome and the contemporary street life.
Freedom comes from the balance of acting outside a framework of preconceived notions. Harmony comes from tolerance. Denying authoritarianism, and being the author of that decision, in order to leave space to personal interpretation: Multi-faceted. Open. Feminine. Looking to the street with the memory of the past and the reassurance of knowledge. Rome as the symbol of free thoughts, made up of unfettered associations and layers: of cultures, of worlds and of aesthetics. Daywear as a choice. Easy mixes, thrown together like bootleggers recording live open air. The lettering of the logo leads the beat. The masculine and the exotic. Seductive languor and marine crispness. Floral femininity and San Gallo lace. Foulards. Boots. Instinctive eclecticism to shape the freedom of self-expression, subverting dogmas that are then recomposed in unexpected ways. A new idea of beauty is born from allowing sedimentations, contrasts and pacific cohabitations to be left together for what they are. Just like the eternal city of Rome, where harmony comes from a fusion of all things. The freedom of creating that becomes the freedom of interpretation. A planned declaration: strong, antidogmatic. – from Valentino
