And, what if you dared to go pink Valentino this season? Valentino, guided by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, is taking a bold monochromatic approach with its new Pink PP Collection where a specially created pink shade in collaboration with Pantone Color Institute becomes the backbone of the collection.
Boldness is one of the key words in fashion today. It embraces the imagination of designers, voluntarily pushed by consumers who now want to put forward, in life and on social networks, their individual expression.
Following the experimental urge of a radical gesture, Pierpaolo Piccioli reduces his palette to a single shade, pink, making this color a “manifestation of the unconscious and a liberation from the need for realism.”
This bold aesthetic choice highlights the uniqueness of the person and the work on the clothes. Through reduction, Piccioli amplifies the personality of the wearer and the outward signs that shape their silhouette.
The brilliance of this bold hue is also found in the large volumes sculpted, geometric shapes, sensual S-shaped lines as well as in the details borrowed from the women’s wardrobe: bows, ruffles, petals, lace, ethereal materials like chiffon and organza, and embroidery. The accessories also follow.
All in Valentino pink, the men’s collection includes sweatshirts, nylon or cotton T-shirts – some with the German writer’s borrowed inscription: “My brain feels like fridge magnet poetry”, a wool crew neck sweater, a reversible double-faced wool jacket, an overshirt in nylon or cotton, wool and silk blend, a chiffon top, crepe pants, cargo pants, a wool coat as well as accessories, such as a leather belt bag, a mini crossbody bag, a Rockstud necklace, and a pair of sneakers, “One Stud XL” in nappa leather. Prices range from $750 USD for a t-shirt to $2500 USD for a coat.
