Paris: This season, Maria Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli took their audience on a round-the-world tour with Valentino. “Cultures becoming one culture – that’s what we find exciting”, they explained. And so came a grand melangé of global references, each look bearing exotic embellishments that made them feel personalised – without loosing their commercial edge. Looks came infused with Asian inspired botanicals or boy-scout-esque patches sewn onto an array of outerwear: Unicorns, elephants, dragons and tigers, meandered their way around silk souvenir jackets and military shirts, evoking a desire for exploration.1940’s inspired Hawaiian shirting came worn under leather bomber jackets- colour blocked in tropical hues. Elsewhere, denim made a huge statement; hand-stitched, thermal bonded or patchworked – this was more than your average pair of jeans – the designers commenting, “You can do couture with denim. We want to translate this value into pieces you can use in your real life.” And that was just the point – real life – Valentino’s collection represented high-end fashion, with unfathomable commercial appeal. – Anna Ross
