Leave it to Pierpaolo Piccioli to work out dreamy ensembles and couture creations like none other. Turning fantasy into sartorial reality, the sartorial maven has created a lot of stunning and unparalleled creations for Valentino.
The label featured their newest collection ‘DAYDREAM’ in Beijing recently, showcasing a fusion of two distinctive and strong cultures, and we are truly dreaming with our eyes open!
"Under the arcades of the Summer Palace a fantastic encounter of two different cultures happen to like a dream unfolding before the viewers' open eyes," the show notes state. "Symbols, colors, decorations merge one into the other as the Italian spirit of the Renaissance meets the opulence of the Chinese splendor."
Ball gowns, sheath dresses and wide-legged pants, all found their place in this collection. From swirling brocades and shimmery sequins to elaborate appliques and ruffles, a lot of techniques were fused with their toit cultural elements to form this magnificent capsule collection.
Retro romantics of the ensembles fused with modern components and cultural references made for a rather dreamy treat for the suckers of all things modish.
Small wonder that Piccioli dubbed the collection “Valentino Daydream.”
