Majestic Silhouettes for Valentino Haute Couture F/W

In terms of creativity, Valentino’s F/W 2020 Couture Collection reached its pinnacle. Pierpaolo Piccioli, the genius behind the eponymous fashion house, and photographer Nick Knight showcased the couture collection on Tuesday. “The Performance of Grace and Light,” was livestreamed from Cinecittà Studios in Rome.

The haute couture show unfolded as a hypnotic ballet with suspended models wearing angelic white-toned looks including veil dresses of extreme lengths, a cape made of white airy feathers over a sequined bodysuit and voluminous shoulders, all staged in a dark theater.

Piccioli stated in a Zoom conference that due to the circumstances of the pandemic, working in the Valentino atelier socially-distanced was a challenge for creating prints and lavish embroideries. The show was an “an extreme response” to this situation. “It was super-emotional for us all to be here together to win this challenge. A moment I will never forget,” he said. The show was full of emotions as the utopian invitation allowed viewers to live the Valentino dream vicariously.

By setting the bar this high, in this case, literally – Piccioli changed couture’s standards and made history for the fashion house.
