Pierpaolo Piccioli brings back menswear for Valentino for the first time in four years. Bringing a new menswear collection for Fall/Winter 2024, the collection is a continual reflection of the contemporary ideals of masculinities. This time around, Piccioli uses color as a tool to explore communications of ideas and ideals. Titled “Le Ciel,” the collection was rooted in a pure blue hue, often an archetypal marker of masculinity. With this collection, the designer reassess that trope, reconsidering and reconfiguring the conversation behind the modern man.

While the color blue was traditionally feminine before taking a turn in the past century to signify maleness, the color blue in Piccioli’s eyes also signifies freedom. In particular, “sky blue” represents the ability to think freely and quite literally believing that the sky is the limit. The juxtaposition is seen in traditional masculine wardrobe essentials like in suiting and tailoring, contrasted with the fluidity and delicacy of bold colors in pink, blue, green and orange. Bright colored tunics high collared turtle necks were worn underneath the classic black and white suit and tie ensmeble, reflecting a new age of softened tailoring. Color accents are used minimally, giving an elegant emphasis to each suiting combination. Timeless celebrations are seen throughout the collection to create the modern gentle man to subvert the stereotypical masculine ideal.

Take a look at the collection above.
