Valentino release party collection in time for festive celebrations

AN EXPLOSION of luxuriant metallics, bold colours and shimmering accents sums up the 2022 collection by Valentino. Anticipating a season of celebration and thanksgiving, the recent capsule by the Maison perfectly encapsulates a seasonal energy of excitement and fun. 

Owing to the fine craftsmanship that has come to be expected by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, the collection centres recurrent elements of embroidery, embellishments and expert tailoring.

For women, the collection champions a narrative of jewel tones, feather plumes and a seemingly never-ending supply of sequins. From rhinestone-embroidered jackets deriving inspiration from archival designs, to multicolour tweed bouclé garments, evening wear takes every aspect of seasonal party clothing and amplifies it to the highest degree, all while staying true to an aesthetic that is undeniably Valentino. 

Menswear for the season, though perhaps slightly less bold in colour, furthers the dialogue of embroidery and statement embellishments, while simultaneously taking traditional tailoring accents and turning them on their head for a more outgoing consumer.
