For their Valentino resort collection, creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli opted for clean and graphic silhouettes done in a fresh and summery color palette. “We imagined a playful and optimistic collection, using color as a structural, rather than decorative, element,” said Chiuri. The young yet sophisticated daywear included a fuchsia ruffled chiffon dress with contrasting white collar and cuffs, while a more masculine georgette shirt was paired with a feminine red-and-white striped silk duchesse skirt. Couture accents appeared on the maxidresses, such as a voluminous tulle one with floral lace and macramé embroideries that created a multicolored camouflage effect. “This collection represents a new step in the contemporary evolution of Valentino’s language,” noted Piccioli. “It’s full of blends and contrasts and every single piece is imagined as an iconic element.”
