This was an interesting tidbit from Vogue’s coverage of this collection:
What Piccioli has triumphed at these past few years is the way he has challenged himself, the house he oversees, and the industry itself, to keep thinking differently, respectfully, democratically. (Consider how, at the end of his show, he led the models out onto the street, so the crowds outside could see the collection.)
That is good for Instagram coverage (and also for regular press coverage; every outlet will write a little piece that reads, “Valentino took their models to the streets!” and people will read it), but it’s also sort of just great? The collection itself had a lot to appeal to celebrities, to rich civilians, and to chic witches with money to burn. Let’s take a look.
