Valentino’s show was a tropical traverse through designer Pierpaolo Piccoli’s mind. Foliage from the jungle was seen reimagined, gracing garments and accessories with bold colors like jungle green, fiery red, tangerine, and amaranth purple. On the brand’s mood board were an array of inspirational touchpoints—ranging from glowing light fixtures to religious gatherings, and from sculptures to tropical landscapes. Seamlessly translated were flora, fauna, and animals—seen on dresses and bags. Braided rope sandals and leather fringe on bags added a casualness to the sophisticated new offerings; and ostrich feathers erupted from hand-sewn beading embellishments on an evening dress from a new-age bride’s dreams.
