Pierpaolo Piccioli

Valentino‘s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli plans to show the brand’s pre-fall collection in New York on Jan. 11.

The designer told WWD he plans to hold a runway show in the city, although the location has not been defined yet.

“I am thinking of New York for June, too,” he said of the pre-spring season. “New York seems to me the ideal location for the pre-collections, it’s international and has such charm.” He said he wasn’t thinking in terms of grand, “spectacular events,” but emphasized how “pre-collections are becoming super important, where style if fundamental. These collections really represent the company.”

Piccioli showed his first solo collection for the Rome-based brand in October in Paris with the spring season.
