According to the Creative director of Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli, "Fashion shows are there to solidify the narration around your values and your identity,” " But a Resort collection is the moment when fashion speaks its own language. There’s no storytelling here, just work on construction, cut, silhouettes, color. It’s just moda, fashion, in its purest self. ” That's why Resort collections always look sleek but relaxed. This year's Valentino Resort Collection comes across minimalistic and stylish. It reminds us of early collections by Valentino Garavani in the late 1960s when lines were pure, volumes were close to the body, and decoration was kept to a minimum.
