Valentino has presented the Pre Fall 2019 co-ed by Pierpaolo Piccioli at Terrada Warehouse of Tokyo.
In the new collection two ideas of beauty are compared: one strives for balance, symmetry, harmony; the other is asymmetrical, and favors what is impermanent. The space between things is a place for pondering and inventing. A syllable captures this suspended idea of construction: Ma.
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. Familiar signs are transposed and seen anew. Change is in the point of view: a quest for imperfect perfection. The code becomes inclusive, keeping the street as the horizon.
