Delving into the spring, the latest outing from Valentino designers Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri still maintains the womanly frills of fall in a more subdued manner, however, with a muted palette of off white, blue and black. A mature contrast to last season’s bold shapes and scalloped edges, romanticism reigns supreme for the fashion house’s spring collection.
As with last season, the fall collection from Valentino’s Haute Couture line takes some risks with its exaggerated proportions and structural complexities. Yet whatever risks the collection may take, they are offset by a cool color palette of cream, black and a hint of that signature Valentino red. When looking at the garments, one can imagine that the range was made for a young and feminine woman with the understated hair and makeup that made the show’s “wow moments” that much more powerful.
Valentino continues in the vein of moody campaigns with its latest fall advertisements where models Freja Beha Erichsen, Monika Jagaciak and Tati Cotliar are more nude than clothed. Lensed by David Sims, the trio dons the label’s elegant wear in black and white.
Photography duo, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, think pink for Valentino‘s spring advertising campaign. Starring Dree Hemingway with candy cotton pink hair, the images continue in the same vein as the spring season with their dark and mysterious atmosphere.
