Valentino fall winter 2016 2017 ready to wear collection is about ballet, the modern dance movement with the designer’s interpretation of slowing down and living in the moment.
“We always think fashion is cultural, not just about delivering clothes,” said Maria Grazia Chiuri. “We want this show to be about living your moments, feeling each moment uniquely. I really love fashion. This job we do is a good opportunity to describe the time we’re in.”
As many brands say “fuck it” to the traditional fashion calendar and move into “see now, buy now” concept, Valentino has a different interpretation about it. “Everybody is speaking about ‘see and buy,’” said Chiuri backstage. “We think that to be in the moment is more important. You can see and you can feel as well. You can also buy, but it is not true that fashion is only to buy.”
To Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the moment of sharing a fashion show is priceless with the devotions of the designer, the press and many others. Even the music for the show is happening for the moment, performed alive by the pianist Vanessa Wagner on site.
The shoes on the runway are presented in many varieties featuring different moments of mood. There are sturdy leather combat boots with street gothic tone outfit and black lace up bootie with comfortable block heels for dark and sober moments. The velvet sandals, ankle strap flats, Mary-Jane pumps are the notes for romantic decorations. And of course, the soft sole ballet flat for ballet inspirations.
