Discover Valentino‘s Fall Winter 2018.19 Couture Collection presented on Wednesday July 4th, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture. For the collection designer Pierpaolo Piccioli was inspired by the illusive nature of time, being in the moment – here and now, while memories overlap with present.
“A sense of surprise that passes from one glance to another, myths that take on different hues, emotions that are imprinted in the air, between the intarsias, in the weavings. Now, in this moment, together, in and out of the frame of time.
Time is an intimate matter. It is the boundless breath of the imagination and the diligent rhythm of creation, the encounter between who imagines and who creates, bringing visions, from Kairos, that revolve around oneself, to Kronos made concrete by reality. It is the imagined that becomes substantial: the fantasy of real Haute Couture, pictured in a daydream, brought to life through emotions.
Everything has a memory: a touch is always a volatile and palpable imprinting. The hands, the mind, the thoughts, the moments: it is the dresses that connect and withhold personality and essence, points of view and gestures. An apollonian spontaneity pervades everything.“
