Pierpaolo Piccioli‘s Valentino channels minimalism into elevated uniforms that play with modern silhouettes. For Spring/Summer 2024, Valentino heads to Paris’ École Nationale, seeing striking dancers roll in sand and dirt to create an intense ASMR experience. British artist FKA Twigs performed live, bringing a unique experience to the historic venue.
While Fall/Winter 2023 served up elevated black tie dress codes, SS24 keeps the female form at the forefront. Valentino’s “L’Ecole” collection allows all women to stand strong, liberating them from standard restraints or gendered ideals.
American model Kaia Gerber opened the runway show with a sculptural mini-dress that revealed pockets of skin. Strong-shouldered suiting arrived in clean white tones while birds in flight merged to create singular textiles. Boxy T-shirts, flower-embellished denim, and faded Canadian tuxedos donned bold outlines that manipulate the body, followed by majestic forest green dresses with exposed chest openings.
Models walked the runway confidently to honor women everywhere. The concept was cemented into delicate blue capped gowns and knitted garments, completing the collection with a selection of black and red looks that promote Valentino’s notable identity. The brand debuted its new Valentino Garavani Vlogo Moon bag across the collection, featuring golden chain handles attached to the half moon-shaped silhouette.
