Valentino introduces women's haute couture S/S collection

Jan '14
For Haute Couture SS 2014 graceful creatures, ethereal and primordial, inhabit a dreamlike world. Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have created an opus of pure imagination, a harmonious and unexpected work, it is interpreted by a kaleidoscope of figures.

The collection appears on a set, that is itself an accumulation of different scenes – the result of an ingenious partnership with the Rome Opera House – with which the clothes complement.

A swarm of butterflies alight upon a cape, delicate and transitory. Lions, snakes, and gorillas appear as intarsia on coats and capes.

Opulence acquires an airy yet ancestral quality in fringed jute dresses, in satin capes with knotted feathers, and in textured, glamorous coats crowded with African scenes. Draped cady dresses have pristine volumes and an archaic, affirmative presence akin to the figures of a choir.

Earthly hues such as grey, beige, brown and rust abound. The woman is always at the center: she is a multi-faceted and elusive figure dressed in ever-changing guises, because by denying movement, contradiction and change one rejects the exciting, imperfect energy of life.
