The fall collection of Valentino’s younger line, Red Valentino, was presented at a showroom appointment on Tuesday. Looking to the Brothers Grimm’s “Hansel and Gretel” for inspiration, creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli created a lineup full of youthful charm and whimsical, folkloric elements from the story’s native Germany. Gretel was the muse for several looks, including a knit corset with a peplum that was teamed with a full skirt reminiscent of a dirndl, and Hansel provided design cues for the hunting jackets in men’s wear-influenced plaids and houndstooth. The floral embroideries on knit dresses added a sweet and innocent touch. Marzipan inspired the bold florals on a capelet, and a gingerbread house scene was referenced on cameo-printed skirts.
