Made for the fierce spirit in us all
Recalling the aesthetic of renowned Dutch pottery commonly known as Delft, Valentino's Fall 20 Collection entitled Bluegrace is reminiscent of 16th century designs.
The collection depicts a long liaison between the navy blue motifs which the Dutch potters from the 16th century decorated and the Maison, that first proposed them in the Haute Couture Fall/ Winter 68-69 Collection and again in a different prospective in the Fall/Winter 13-14 Collection.
The essential elements of this new process are evident in notions of the archive and of Haute Couture, from which designer Pierpaolo Piccioli derives a brand new narrative.
Akin to pieces of art, the layers of clothing represent the fluid relationship between the past and present.
Featuring signs of the archive, from the signature Valentino Bluegrace motif to the floral and geometric prints from the ‘60s and ‘70s, the pieces are designed for every occasion, from daywear to eveningwear.
