Valentino Explores Masculinity's Artistic Side for Fall/Winter 2018 Menswear
Inspired by Italian art, late ’70s music and more.
Last summer, Valentino employed high colors, assortments of ascots and solid primary colors for a Spring/Summer 2018 collection billed as “luxury sportswear perfection.” Placing the focus on the Fall/Winter 2018 lineup, Valentino returns with more high-end contemporary fare.
For Valentino’s Fall/Winter 2018 run, the label utilizes an artful range of darker colors and appeals to modern sensibilities. Specifically, the Italian outfit delivers an impressive array of outerwear, aiming to give consumers a timeless selection of coats and jackets. Inspired by Italy’s rich art history, Pablo Picasso and the music of the late ’70s and ’80s, Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli hoped to produce a collection that expressed the emotive, creative side of masculinity. “The male wardrobe is a century of rules and I think in the past decades men have changed very fast. They don’t want to be stereotyped anymore,” he tells Vogue.
