Valentino SS22 - A Look towards the Future

Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli decided to embrace perspectives of the future with a collection that celebrates the new generation of people in fashion. As an ode to the tech-savvy tik toking Gen Z-ers, he presented a beautiful gender fluid collection that spoke to the strength and dynamics of today’s youth. “I’ve been talking for a long time about making a shift, embracing a new generation, a new world, and also to be leading a change. You know, Mr. Valentino took part in engaging with youth in the ’60s. That was a revolutionary time. So I think this is my way of doing that today: keeping the codes and the couture values, and talking about a beauty which is about humanity and a shared wardrobe,” Piccioli explained. The collection featured an array of light flowing tailoring , rendered in bright vivid colours from deep purples to glowing yellows , fluorescent greens and chocolate browns. Each silhouette has an aesthetically pleasing effect on the eyes in its celebration of the youth’s take on beauty . Some looks were also given new life such as the classic high waisted denim jeans which recalled Valentino’s first denim collection launched in the 80’s as well as a few classic flower printed dresses from ‘70s.
