During the Spring/Summer 2023, Valentino presented a new collection. Its style was more minimalistic, but it also embodied femininity. Using a variety of fabrics, the designers used their signature Toile Iconographe logo motif to create their designs. The designs are perfect for the modern woman who wants to be stylish, but doesn’t want to sacrifice comfort.
During Paris Fashion Week, Valentino Creative Director, Pierpaolo Piccioli unveiled his latest collection: the Spring/Summer 2023 Unboxing Movement. The collection was a celebration of minimalism, maximalism, and transparency. The collection was also an interesting look at the concept of “Unboxing” and how a designer is able to “unbox” an idea.
In the collection, Piccioli takes the house monogram and re-imagines it in a more contemporary way. He also presents an innovative color palette that includes nudes, browns, and blacks.
The best styles were simple evening dresses. There was also a collection of boiler suits, car coats, and dresses with deep V pleats. The collection also featured an impressive number of sequins.
The 91-look collection was the centerpiece of the visual story for the season. It incorporated nine looks featuring the brand’s logo. It was also the first time the designer used hot pink in a collection. It was a move that caught on and has since become the norm for high-fashion houses.
Toile Iconographe logo motif
Taking inspiration from the Sixties and Seventies, Valentino Spring/Summer 2023 Toile Iconographe is a house monogram print that reshapes the Italian House’s codes. This season, the ‘V’ motif is given a fresh new lease of life, and it is presented on a wide variety of pieces.
Originally introduced in the Spring/Summer collection of 1968, the ‘V’ logo has now become an integral part of the brand’s aesthetic. It is used as a bold beauty look, and also appears on jackets, boots, and bags. The V-Logo is a symbol that represents Valentino’s creativity, culture, and history. It is a rippling pattern that is primarily black, but it is paired with red throughout the collection.
The Valentino Spring/Summer collection 2023 Toile Iconographe campaign was shot by Steven Meisel. The model’s face was reimagined in the logo, as well as on bucket hats, bags, and shoes. It also appeared on leather work and embellishments. The campaign is an intriguing one.
Tonally matched outfits to the wearer
Putting aside the fact that it is one of the most celebrated brands in fashion, Valentino’s Spring/Summer collection 2023 tells a compelling story about the importance of conscious purity. It’s a collection with generous volumes, stretchy underlayers and elasticated waists. Using a combination of bold, bold and bright colors, the collection is a showcase of modern Italian design.
In keeping with its minimalist aesthetic, the designers at Eckhaus Latta opted to eschew the glitz and glam for an array of clean, crisp and tonally matched outfits. A navy suit with a hint of black accentuated by a bit of sparkle stood out in the crowd. The designer’s signature Rockstud ballet flats also made an appearance.
While the title of the aforementioned aforementioned aforementioned aforementioned was the best bet, the company’s designers had no shortage of aforementioned aforementioned aforementioned to choose from. There was no dearth of aforementioned aforementioned aforementioned or aforementioned aforementioned aforementioned, but it’s safe to say that the company’s signature toss-ups were well deserved.
Lack of red-carpet stunners
Despite the lack of red-carpet stunners, Valentino Spring/Summer 2023 was a strong collection. The concept of conscious purity was conveyed through generous volumes, stretchy underlayers, and a cascade of different colors. The models wore simple makeup and jewelry.
Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative director of Valentino, showed womenswear and menswear at the same time. His spring collection emphasized creams, blacks, browns, and embellishments. His models sported feathers and sequins.
He also created a black and white organza cape that he encrusted with tulle flock and Chantilly lace. The cape was worn over a black tulle mini dress.
During the reveal, he walked beside the models. He said his goal was to bring people back to the authentic idea of essentials. He believes beauty is resilience and creativity. He rethought couture rituals and he chose diverse women to show his work.
He also took a step into the future with his platforms. He said, “The beauty of my designs is to resignify fixed ideas.” He is currently supporting the Italian Pavilion at the 59th International Art Exhibition.
