Florals. Not really my style but when Pierpaulo Piccioli of Valentino sends them down a Runway … I’m all in.
Stunning as the florals are in the Valentino PFW RTW Fall 2018 collection, they look even better in motion so I’ve helpfully added the YouTube video, right at the bottom of this post, for you to click on.
I’ve eulogised many times, in many ways, about the genius of Pierpaulo Piccioli at Valentino so have little more to add here as the images speak for themselves.
Maybe a bit strong, you’re thinking?
No, I don’t think so.
I’m not sure I’ll be alive to see it but, in time, I do think Piccioli’s style and body of work will be distinctive and unique enough to bear comparison with others that we acknowledge as the ‘greats’ of fashion.
Of course, that’s for future historians to determine. For now, our pleasure is simply to experience the sublime design, styling, materials and vision: Pierpaulo Piccioli, Valentino PFW RTW Fall 2018.
