Valentino Fall-Winter 2019-2020 Paris presented during Paris Fashion Week is about “Love is in the air”. “I feel that people are looking for emotion and dreams – but not distant dreams,” said designer of the house Pierpaolo Piccioli. “I want to create a community for Valentino. I mean something different from ‘lifestyle,’ which is about owning objects. It’s about people who share values.”
Pierpaolo Piccioli had inspired by the resonances of Movement for the Emancipation of Poetry, which anonymously pastes lyrical lines on walls in cities around the world. The poetry lines are about love and tenderness.
Pierpaolo Piccioli choose for his collection the Scottish poet and artist Robert Montgomery and the three young writers Greta Bellamacina, Mustafa The Poet, and Yrsa Daley-Ward.
An illuminated billboard with lines by Montgomery stood at the end of the runway, reading, “The people you love become ghosts inside of you and like this you keep them alive.”
Pierpaolo Piccioli picked lines from the anthology to be printed or embroidered inside coats, on mid-layers of tulle dresses, inside bags and boots—so that only the wearer would know they are there.
These fabulous looks of 60s of Pierre Cardin took new round in XXI century. This collection looks a bit like a Darth Vader in love (villain from Star Wars), and specially when several pieces dedicated to 50th anniversary of first man on the moon.
