Valentino’s latest haute couture collection was held on the grand grounds of Château de Chantilly.
Piccioli called the collection “Un Chateau”. In a press statement he explained: “It’s somehow paradoxical to show in an historical site that I believe is a metaphor for status and power, a symbolism that has to be questioned and re-contextualized.”
As the sun set over a symphony of looks at Valentino “Un Château”, the seamstresses of the Maison joined Creative Director Piccioli on the runway to celebrate the latest Valentino Haute Couture collection.
The show was simplicity in all its splendor. “It’s all about concealing the effort that achieving simplicity requires,” Piccioli said.
