Valentino Haute Couture SS17
- Evangelie Smyrniotaki
With one of the hottest tickets in the world of fashion I have the honor to magically teleport you to Pierpaolo Piccoli's incredibly beautiful world, the world of Valentino. Maison Valentino's SS17 Haute Couture show was not just another Haute-Couture moment but a dream skillfully translated into reality. Actually, it is Pierpaolo's dream, the sole creative director of the house, who artfully orchestrated a very modern fairytale whose significance will be remembered for years. Not only because he feasted our senses with the goose bumping intensity of the exclusive musical score by the great Master Alexandre Desplat but also because he just gave to fashion the biggest lesson: That simplicity is the greatest ability. Graceful shapes and cuts, sculpted pleats, chiffon braids, delicate hand stitched frills, a marvel of minimalism, divine creatures floating like billowing clouds, opening a getaway to the sky. A triumph of craftsmanship. Brava Pierpaolo.
