Valentino Fall 2019 Couture

Wednesday, July 10, 2019


"Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli is the couture designer who matters most in 2019." Vogue said this in their review on the house's Fall 2019 Couture show. The designer’s new offering was very much a continuation of its predecessor. “The only way to make couture alive today is to embrace different women’s identities and cultures,” Piccioli said in a studio preview.


"His mood board reflected that notion with its mix of Avedon portraits, Guy Bourdin advertising shots, canvases by the Italian Renaissance mannerist Rosso Fiorentino, and paintings of Diana Vreeland. “The eye has to travel,” he said, referring to the documentary about the famous editor. And travel Piccioli did, adding what he called folk elements, like ornamental hats and komondor wool fringe, to his exquisite garments." - Nicole Phelps


Summarizing any more would defeat Piccioli’s point about individuality. Put simply: The cumulative effect of all this beauty was irresistible. The audience was on its feet even before the designer walked out for his bow with his atelier staff. When Valentino himself began kissing his congratulations to each and every one of them, many of the typically impassive editors could be seen wiping away tears.


Such a stunning show and I can't wait to see these looks portrayed in editorials and on the red carpet.
