A tribute to Mr Valentino, from Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli
With a thoughtful combination of soft lights and sombre colors, Valentino set their Autumn/Winter 2016 Menswear fashion collection in the middle of a castle-like decor, much to the delight of the Parisian audience.
The Valentino Autumn/Winter 2016 offering, which was broadcast online as well, offers the comfort and coolness sought by modern men. In Paris, a tailored camel coat offered a black tie and dye effect, a military-inspired outer piece was embellished with crystal ornaments, while oversized trench came with leather contrasting straps.
Mr Valentino himself was fond of travel. Whether he was going up North, looking for the wild nature of the East or getting some rest in the South, he always managed to travel smart, combining his ensembles to the then-exotic location. From the ethnic poncho to the herringbone tailored pieces and from the patent leather trench coat to the now-famous studded finishes of the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli paid tribute to the founder of the Italian established house with elegance. In other terms: Go Valentino.
