Runway Review

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Picollo have used their seven year reign at Valentino in transforming the label into one of the most sought after cool and profitable menswear brand around, upon attending the Valentino menswear runway show last night you would know why.

The design duo clearly understands what men want in their wardrobe, items that are catchy yet versatile, cool and hip, yet classic at the same time and not boring at all, and have transformed smart into casual in a very inspiring way as you can see from this autumn winter 2015 collection.

The collection is inspired by the non-conformist artistic movements of the early 20th Century presenting a contemporary synthesis of seminal experiences in the early Ballets Russes in which Djagilev worked with the most famous artists of that time, from Picasso to Bakst moving naturalism to mysterious forms of simultaneous geometry.

This particular collection is conceived through the 60's era of futurism and cubism that is showcased in today's geometric motifs of Australian artist Esther Stewart, with whom the design duo collaborated in translating her works from the surface within the structure and construction of the clothes.

While the items were extremely superb in their own taste what really struck me at the show is how they were worn and styled by the Valentino team, over shirts and ties were worn under crewneck knits with suit jackets and sock less formal shoes, beautiful pleated chambray trousers worn over sneakers, suits in different color blocks from red, black brown, dark blue and plaid and at times with butterflies, definitely for the stylish man in the boardroom or a night out at town.

The most staple of fabrics denim was double layered and double worn in a way that is so typical of the Valentino man bold, vibrant and energetic, with camouflage also making a massive return onto this collection, this one is definitely a winner in my heart
