Marking his first debut in the land of the rising sun, Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli chose Tokyo, Japan, to debut his new men’s and women’s Pre-Fall 19 collections.
“The iconography of the Maison – the ruffles, the lace, the grace, and then the flowers, the colors, the motifs – is interpreted in a wabi sabi key. Volumes are purified, ruffles are crushed, pleats are misaligned. Black and red are splashed onto prints, the V logo marks allover.”
Only red, white and black are the colors used, two ideas of beauty are compared in a dialogue between perfection and imperfection, permanence and caducity.
