Pierpaolo Piccioli focused on fantasy of the moon and nature for Valentino SS18 collection.

 

He picks up on the elements of the mysterious planet by playing with embellishment and shimmering fabrics, while his take on earth’s beauty is seen through floral embroidery.

 

Modest but never solemn, elegant but never dull, Piccioli’s skills lie in the ability to inject lightness into his creations that lift them to something modern and wearable. We saw rain jackets in sheer shiny fabrics that reflect the light with every move, there were simple vests dripping in embellishment that were styled with sequin trim slouchy trousers, while the round pearl earrings dangled from models’ ears like ornamental moons.

 

His best work? Creating a heart-stopping beautiful gowns. Be it with extreme low-necklines, long-sleeved, embroidered or embellished – there is always a sense of balance and fluidity, yet you know wearing a gown like that will have an unparalleled sense of occasion.

 

Palette centered on reds, greens and pastels that were worked into his romantic way of designing blousons, cargo trousers, tank tops, shirts and dresses. He played with volumes as well as hemlines with plenty of day wear and evening options to please any Valentino devotee.

 

This may have been a fantasy for Piccioli, but we are glad to see it made into reality.
