Creative Director, Pierpaolo Piccolo, of Valentino, brings us REDValentino! Named Designer of the Year at the InStyle Awards in 2017 for his creative direction at Valentino. The honor came after he went solo, following the departure of his former partner, Maria Grazia Chiuri, who left for Dior.
“Luxury materials, a keen eye for detail and timeless beauties.”
Created in 2003, REDValentino intertwines the essential Valentino spirit with modern, edgy, urban street-style and fine, delicate workmanship.
“A sense of daring, a playful lack of conventions – fashion as individual expression.”
The name also recognizes the signature color “Valentino Red”, created by founder Valentino Garavani. Piccioli’s delivers elegant and romantic cuts inspired by different cultures and centuries, and female visionaries like naturalist Maria Sibyl Merian, botanist Mary Delany and British political activist Emmeline Pankhurst.
Empowerment and fashion coexist with bold, oversize blouses, sleek pantsuits, grommets and studs, and references to suffragette can be seen in feminine folk designs, with ruffles, bows, and botanical prints. Daring black, warm caramel, bright white, and earthy greens are seen within the collection.
