Maison Valentino Runway Show for Paris Fashion Week FW23 Ready To Wear Collection came with a fresh breath of air to the fashion show as the designs displayed were dreamy; from the footwears up to the accessories worn.
The use of floor length coats helped spice up the black tie and immaculate white shirt with furs at the end. With his evening ‘Smoking’ suits in the 1960s, Yves Saint Laurent was the first to blur the lines between menswear and womenswear. Valentino Garavani was focusing much more on creating a language of femininity that drew conventional aristocrats, Hollywood actresses, and socialites at the time.
But, while Piccioli’s modernization of the Valentino remit is disruptive in one sense, the wealth of techniques, skills, fabrics, and trimmings he employs is entirely authentic to the house. Underneath the white-collar, black-tie concept were delicate frill-front blouses, ostrich feathers, sequined minis, 3-d roses, and a dress made entirely of a lattice-work of red bowties, amongst a collection heavy on classy, voluminous coats. Still, nothing summed up the new Valentino spirit better than a long, unadorned silk shirt-dress draped to one side at the hip. In a striking red, it captured a mysterious blend of flou and cool.
