Valentino Resort 2016

Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by Diana Vreeland’s “The eye has to travel” motto to design their beautiful and eclectic resort collection, which embraced the concept of multiculturalism. These divergent inspirations were blended together in a sophisticated lineup where simple silhouettes were enriched by exquisite decorations and opulent textures — many in a garden motif, although Chiuri and Piccioli also introduced more geometric motifs, such as the Navajo-inspired embroideries of a tulle gown trimmed with beaded fringe. More delicate and feminine floral patterns were used on a crepe de chine shirt and pajama pants worn with a luxurious intarsia mink fur coat. Everything was infused with an eccentric, hyper-decorative touch, which reached its peak on a sumptuous tulle and chiffon maxidress with an abundance of embroideries, fabric intarsia detailing and beads.
