As the second haute couture show for Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino, one must say it was close enough to fascinating. Simple and elegant classic cuts, printed pants, and colour layering gave this everyday-wear collection a transitional touch.

There were hooded capes and over-sized robe silhouettes, and metal bags with mosaic sculpted details of animal heads. Some of our favourite extraordinary designs, include a pleated skirt made of emerald feather stripes; and the creative director brings displays a dazzling fabric combinations of lace brocade and cashmere, chiffon, velvet and textured sparkly embroidery.

This Victorian inspired yet colourful collection, helped Piccolo to stayed focused on the house’s latest ensembles paired with caped backs for a dramatic tone, where he also paraded some of his signatures of sheer and ruffled banquet-like dresses.
