5 Things to Know About Valentino's Spellbinding New Show in Paris

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. 

The Valentino show started not with a model but with a musician. FKA Twigs burst onto the scene at the École des Beaux-Arts, sprinting down the entire length of the runway before climbing on top of an elevated stage in the center of a courtyard, where a handful of dancers were already positioned. They continued their performance as models walked the runway, creating an electric atmosphere. 

Valentino attracted an exceptionally stylish front-row crowd that included Maude Apatow, Leslie Mann, Andrew Garfield, Florence Pugh, Penn Badgley, Simone Ashley, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Charles Melton, Samara Weaving, Olivia Dean, Cher, Kris Jenner, and others.

Valentino certainly knows how to design a mean accessory and this season was no exception. The brand’s newest offering is almost guaranteed to become a cult favorite: the VLOGO Moon Bag. Featuring a gold logo worn around the wrist, the new design is as pretty as a piece of jewelry. 

The bag came down the runway in a slew of different colors, including black, white, green, brown, tan, pink, and gray. 

This is not your grandmother’s doily. Piccioli presented no less than a dozen versions of the intricately detailed 3-D cutouts you can see in the above image. The designer likened the technique to high-relief sculpture. 

I’ve never met a bow-embellished dress I didn’t love. 

These pumps are guaranteed to earn compliments.

Everyone wants a Valentino bag.
