Valentino traditionally shows in Paris, but this season Pierpaolo Piccioli moved it to Milan to close the season there. And apparently it felt like this:

Of course, the language of couture is a fundamental signifier for Valentino. What Piccioli is doing in his “re-signification” of Valentino is simply re-writing its codes within the context of a changing world—innovating and modernizing without losing the house’s essence; keeping the emotional vibrancy, while being effectively attuned to the beat of today’s intense rhythm.

Word salad. This is why I never got into heavy-duty fashion writing. To me, this pretty full and long show said, “We are SO READY for famous people to start wearing things again. GET A MOVE ON, COVID.”
