An exciting freshness and unmistakable lightness runs through Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2016 Haute Couture Collection. Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli take inspiration from the libertarian spirit and undisciplined style of memorable rock concerts creating embroidered dresses, jackets, sneakers and reinterpreting iconic accessories with a rock’n’roll mood always with couture at its core.

For this collection, Chiuri and Piccioli also revisited in a modern key the art of Mariano Fortuny (1871 – 1949), a Spanish fashion designer. He combined the Byzantine East and the Classic West, creating the Delphos gown, a shift dress made of finely pleated silk weighed down by glass beads that held its shape and flowed on the body. The pleating that he used was all done by hand and no one has ever been able to recreate pleating that is as fine as his or has held its shape like his dresses have for many years.
Valentino’s Haute Couture Collection is also a tribute to many characters connected to the Spanish artist: women like Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis and Martha Graham that made the history of dance, muses and artists themselves, who changed the course of history and tradition through their passion.
