Pierpaolo Piccioli, Anatomy of Couture by Valentino

At number 8 of Place Vendôme in Paris, Anatomy of Couture was staged, the fashion show dedicated to the human body, both female and male, by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, which once again brings to the fore his ability to innovate the Couture of Valentino.

Couture is imagined on a variety of women, building a collection that passes through a composite harmony of dresses, studied through a long process. Piccioli does not want to tell about perfection but the diversity of bodies and shapes.

Anatomy of Couture

In Anatomy of Couture nothing is left to chance, so there are many references ranging from Venus Willendorf to that of Sandro Botticelli, up to more contemporary images such as black and white photographs created by the visual artist Man Ray “le violon d ‘ Ingres ”to the portraits of a young and ephebic Kate Moss.

Perfection and imperfection of the bodies

In the perfection and imperfection of the bodies, curved lines and straight lines alternate, exaggerated volumes and drapery-effect dresses, and where sequins, feathers, cut-outs, transparencies and draperies recline to reveal the secret of vitality, translated into a dress.

Embroidered dresses, monochromatic looks, flowing fabrics and structured dresses materialize in an ageless heterogeneous cast where neutral shades mix with pastel and fluorescent colors.

Many elements of the previous collections are taken up such as the wide and structured skirt, the feather inserts and the organza cape.

With this collection Pierpaolo Piccioli reaffirms the vitality of Haute Couture, as a means of a language that is renewed every time, giving the body a strong aesthetic charge.
