- Evangelie Smyrniotaki
“A new beginning demands a certain forgetfulness. In order to rewrite history one should forget about it and retain the essence, moving quickly and irreverently to explore the pleasures of metamorphosis.
Actions should be quick, guided by taste that edits, chooses, combines, unites: elongating, narrowing, keeping time as a value on the surface of things; stripping away of the superfluous to add intensity.
Eras should be crossed in an accelerated supercut, drawing an imaginary line that brings Hieronymus Bosch, the visionary inventor of fantastic heavens and hells, close to Sandra Rhodes, who has been invited to reinterpret the artist’s imagery with her pure and innocent lines.”
That said from Pierpaolo Piccioli on his debut show as the sole creative director of Valentino. I won’t talk much, I will just let you feast your eyes on his breathtaking collection with only one wish….All the new beginnings to be like Pierpaolo’s: EPIC.
