The Valentino show was a feast for the senses. With Kaia Gerber on the runway, Florence Pugh in the front row, and FKA Twigs performing on stage, I don’t blame the guests if they didn’t know where to look—eye candy was quite literally all around them. As for the collection itself, the new pieces were simply divine and included an assortment of ethereal dresses, covetable bags, and must-have shoes.
One of the standout motifs of the S/S 24 collection was sculptural 3-D cutouts. “I wanted to use embroidery not as decoration, but as structure that becomes a fabric in itself,” creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli told Vogue of the cutout technique he used on dresses, tops, and skirts. “I think this is the most exposed collection I’ve done; it shows skin but in a different way.” Scroll down for the 5 things you need to know about Valentino’s newest show.
