Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative genius behind Maison Valentino, unveils his latest Pre/Fall 2024 collection. In a series of masterpieces, the designer has transformed the ordinary into the extraordinary, celebrating the distinctive essence of Valentino with his unparalleled touch of sartorial mastery.
Piccioli’s approach to this wardrobe is described as a very Valentino vision – obviously Garavani – and this is clearly evident in a carefully curated selection of elegant pieces perfect for everyday wear. Each garment has been crafted with grace and adorned with special embellishments.
This designer seems to want to overturn everything. Indeed, his Haute Couture shows are increasingly becoming Prêt-à-porter and vice versa. Thus, the levels of luxury are becoming more similar, believable, and desirable. Among the novelties, the standout feature is the high-relief cut-out inlay, a Haute Couture technique and a decorative detail capable of redefining each individual piece. Then, Valentino’s distinctive elements, including bows, roses, feathers, lace, and scalloped edges, are reinterpreted in a novel and unexpected innovative key.
THE BEST LOOKS FROM VALENTINO’S LATEST PRE/FALL 2024 COLLECTION
In terms of color nuances, the iconic red, gray, various shades of nude, black, and blue stand out. But the sentiment that seems to overwhelm the entire collection is undoubtedly linked to luxury. However, this is completely reimagined and not tied to a superficial ideal but becomes a true philosophy that translates into extraordinary pieces created by skilled hands, even with the humblest materials.
In an industry often associated with excess, Piccioli defends a more subtle luxury, stating that Valentino is a matter of grace and a delicate respect for femininity, never excessively flashy.
Valentino’s Pre/Fall 2024 collection is an ode to craftsmanship, limitless creativity, and timeless luxury. Pierpaolo Piccioli continues to shape the future of fashion, demonstrating how beauty can reside even in the humblest details.
