Maison Valentino has been surprising for many years the public with its breathtaking art, taking it to catwalks all over the world
To present the Pre-Fall 2019 collection, he chose Tokyo, the capital of Japan and the Asian metropolis linked to tradition, although contaminated with ultra-modern elements.

Pierpaolo Piccioli, creative director of the brand, has staged a real show during which he proposed a series of dresses in red and black tulle but above all dresses with prints homage to Japanese culture.
The opening and the final were therefore a true eulogy to the color of the passion, they saw the whole line of red dresses in the collection as protagonists and presented the ready-to-wear for him to the general public. for her.
Above all, two cultures at the antipodes were interpreted by Pierpaolo Piccioli for the Valentino pre-fall 2019 collection: red becomes matter, thus substituting the soft shapes of the clothes. Clear and shiny shade. Sacred. For the Japanese culture, remove evil spirits and purify the soul. Passion explodes from Paris through Italy and reaches the Far East.
Standing ovation then for the brand that expresses, with ambition, the honor of a sacred image: that of Valentino. An extremely honest collection with the past and present of the fashion house and, in some ways, intellectual.
“I have always been fascinated by the Japanese idea of beauty as imperfection and permanent transformations: I think it embodies the modern vision of beauty. This country has always used tradition as a drive to understand and travel to the future. My intention is to establish a respectful link between the two cultures “, said Piccioli.
