Valentino Promenade, the Pre-Fall collection by Valentino combines modern cuts and silhouettes with the House’s heritage. A collection that’s both wearable and aspirational this playful offering is perfect for the summer months.


“I always think my work is to take a new picture of something that you know already, I do it with new life and new shapes, so you view the landscape from my way of seeing,” says Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director of Maison Valentino of this collection.



“When Mr Valentino started designing, there were so many rules for how you wore clothes,” says Piccioli. “Now, fashion is about self-realisation. This collection is shifting Valentino to this new world, giving new meaning to the codes and values.” Piccioli takes Valentino signatures and gives them a fresh outlook with his choice of colours and prints. Stripes and zebra prints on capes and blouses offer a new take on classics and new prints and embroideries create the feminine touch that Valentino is known for.



There is also freeness to this collection; A floor-length dragon print silk shirt can be worn as a dress, a summer coat, “we don’t need to define it,” says Piccioli, “wear it however you want.”



A cropped striped sweater is worn with a utilitarian jacket, mini-skirt and Valentino Garavani sneakers. An embroidered cape, minimal in cut but maximal in detail, is worn with a simple sweater, leather pants and Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain loafers.
