VALENTINO

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Collections Report -

The start­ing point was the sever­ity of Flem­ish paint­ings and the pu­rity of their colours. In­spired by how the faces were framed in th­ese por­traits, Pier­paolo Pic­ci­oli and Maria Grazia Chi­uri put a “Girl with a Pearl Ear­ring” braid on each model and fur­nished al­most ev­ery sin­gle look with a white col­lar. Some were plain cot­ton while oth­ers were laser-cut leather or came with a strand of pearls. The col­lars lent moder­nity and wear­a­bil­ity to the ex­quis­ite gowns and dresses they were at­tached to, and how ex­quis­ite they were. De­mure and ro­man­tic with high neck­lines, scal­loped edges, and elab­o­rate flo­ral em­broi­dery, th­ese were per­fect oc­ca­sion pieces. Even the less elab­o­rate but still per­fectly con­structed day­wear would lend a sense of oc­ca­sion to the day-to-day.
