On the catwalk of Valentino, on the occasion of the presentation of his haute couture fall / winter 2018-19 collection, the eternal game of opposites that the creative director of the fashion house, Pierpaolo Piccioli, demonstrates to perfection how they can not only magnetically attract, but above all coexist, always generating novelties and a pleasant sense of surprise. Dare is the prince of ordne, especially in the colors, brighter than ever, that forever store the classic and gloomy winter in favor instead of an eternal spring, at least of the soul, to wear and show off with pure joie de vivre as the maxi floral headpieces that enhance the beauty of the dresses with the cleanest and most rigorous lines.
Opposite, we said. So it happens to see alternate on the catwalk models with hair hyperbolically cotonati to others that show off a decidedly minimal tail. The effect is to break every alleged thread in a sort of creative chaos that completely overwhelms and seduces. Magnificent prints of dresses with a fluid line as well as the bon ton and ladylike way of wrapping huge pashminas around refined suits, ache with inserts of golden leather.
Ossimori ... It is the triumph of color blocking, with the combination of nuances decidedly far in the color spectrum but also of solid color. Bright colors but also pastel colors. Of graphically sharp prints but also delicately floral. Of clothes that cover everything, thus highlighting to perfection the cut and the model and of clothes, on the other hand, in which seductive transparencies triumph.
