During a preview of his couture collection, Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli talked about Carl Jung. Dreams. Surrealism. He went as haute as it gets, his lineup steeped in references from the midcentury when, for certain well-bred Swans, dressing was an art and haute, it’s most glorious medium.
Along with young beauties, older models including Stella Tennant, Karen Elson and Maria Carla Boscono participated.
Along the way, Piccioli worked more of the marvelous color combinations that have secured his reputation as fashion’s most audacious colorist since Yves Saint Laurent. It was breathtaking.
