Pierpaolo Piccioli put on a buzz-worthy show for the Valentino Fall/Winter 2022 runway during Paris Fashion Week. Right off the bat, Piccioli’s monochrome vision for the show was paraded by the star-studded front-row which saw the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Zendaya grace the pink carpet as well as the all-pink set that greeted attendees as they entered the show venue at the Carreau du Temple.

The collection strips the palette down to a single hue, embracing the less is more concept, which maximizes expressive possibilities through extensive layering and inventive silhouettes. Neon pink is prominent everywhere throughout the show, but was occasionally disrupted by classic black and white monochrome intermissions. The use of pink provides a visual shock to the eye, drawing greater attention to the wearer. The use of a single color runs through the shapes and voluminous silhouettes sculpted by the geometric layering that highlights the way the clothes drape over the body.

Oversized garments remain a popular motif amongst pieces, with relaxed fit trousers paired with mesh tank tops and a hooded, floor-length puff jacket. The utilitarian look is rounded out by collared box-cut jackets, t-shirts and lengthy peacoats. The theme of comfort is prevalent in the collection, as seen presented in hoodies and shearling bomber jackets. The upcoming season sees Valentino’s give the house’s traditionally formal silhouettes a contemporary reimagination that makes pieces versatile in fit for more special and even casual occasions.
