For the new refined collection ready-to-wear spring/summer 2019 Valentino has expressed all the infinite taste of the freedom to be oneself. Here, now. Without pretense and without schemes. Searching for a fixed point in the unstable equilibrium of the present means exploring one's inner space. A mobile place, in which to be as it is, realizing utopias in every moment.
The interior shapes the exterior. He shapes it, shapes it, lives it. Space and person coincide.
A work in subtraction, which rejoins what is true because it is primary. The volumes are pure, mobile, plastic. Black spreads, exploded and energetic sum of all colors. The color is freed, they make personal, fantasized fantasies.
Rigor and eccentricity: extremes that touch each other, giving shape to the courage to be and to be there, just as one wants to be.
Freedom to let the Maison be defined by values even before an aesthetic, because what appears is always the manifest fruit of a feeling, and if the feeling is true, it is all. Values that approach, that speak to those who want and can listen. La Couture, a salient feature of this palpable personality, is primarily a way of looking at the world. Looking at the world from within, certain that freedom is not escape but presence.
