Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri continue to chart a new course for Valentino. The duo’s dressy lineup for cruise ranges from Chantilly-lace trenches and peacoats over shorts to sweeping evening gowns in dégradé or dainty floral patterns. The designers also reintroduced the V logo on the buttons — first used by Valentino himself in 1968. “We’re focusing on a young and fragile woman who wants to be modern via special fabrics and techniques,” says Piccioli. Adds Chiuri, “We want each piece to be iconic, collectible.”
