Pierpaolo Piccioli’s mastery was on display with a glorious array of fluttering feathers, flowing silks, and opulent organza.
“This is made with all the dreams of couture,” said Pierpaolo Piccioli of a Valentino collection that embodied every fantasy one could have of the world’s most exquisite, expensive dresses. His imagination was unfettered, offering a play on colour, volume, and drama; billowing silk capes, sweeping organza trains, explosions of ostrich feathers ... It was historically respectful, deliciously extravagant, and delightfully modern all at the same time.
