Pierpaolo Piccioli’s inspiration for SS18 took a journey to outer space while abiding by Valentino Garavani’s signature aesthetic. The key pieces for the SS18 presentation featured outerwear accented with oversized pockets, zippers and asymmetric detailing. The space vibe was translated to ready-to-wear PVC jackets, sporty halter tops, A-line dresses and sheer embellishments. The ruffled evening and dazzling floral dresses, inspired by Valentino’s glamorous allure, added to the ultra-feminine feel whereas the boxy leather jackets allowed for tougher looks. The luxurious materials showcased embroidered velvet, sequins, and richly embellished floral patterns.
