Precious and evocative, hypnotic thaks its intense colors, the new haute couture spring/summer 2018 collection by Valentino thrives on contrasts that resolve to a happy synthesis between everything and its opposite.. The goal is demonstrating how every thing really important, in history as in art, is the product of a contrast that is solved by producing a whole new reality. In this thing Valentino believes so much and it sends down the catwalk in Paris a collection to look perfectly wearable that what matters are the details, from the macro as the precious fabrics and embroideries until color blocking that is the main theme of this sublime collection. Everything is classically elegant and sophisticated. Yet at the same time resolutely modern. By minidress to outerwear all seems to reveal an aristocratic allure but it does using a fresh, contemporary language in the name of high fashion that is dream and reality at the same time.
