|Valentino Men’s collection SS19 wants to elevate the street: it encounters Couture, in a clash. Breaking the schemes, converting the extraordinary into ordinary. Exploring unknown territories, to let oneself go in order to learn. Musical horizons, antique analogies, feathers to indulge in. Angel’s wings and classic art, hurled on sidewalks.
The collection shows bombers, trench coats, tracksuits, suits: trap lyrics in a live recording. Baseball caps, cloche and feathered sneakers: pieces that break it up but that rhyme at the same. Urban sceneries merging with personal associations.
To mark, to sign, to seize: in order to be and to be there. VLTN, as a logo and as lettering, that multiplies across the different surfaces. Magnified, cut out and duplicated.
