The new Valentino Bluegrace Collection features dresses and accessories embellished by a blue navy motif inspired by Dutch ceramics. The brand already used this print for the Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 1968/1969 Collection, and once again for the Prêt-à-Porter Autumn/Winter 2013/2014 Collection. Now for the Valentino Pre-Fall 2020 Collection this aesthetic sees a comeback, thanks to the brilliant work of the Creative Director, Pierpaolo Piccioli which keeps on taking inspiration from the archives of the brand.
The prints part of the archive, from the decor Valentino Bluegrace to the florals and geometrics prints from the 60s and 70s, are present on all the outfits, which can be mix and matched however you like it, from day to night. Piccioli created a new vision, which storytelling sees as its protagonist an emblematic motif of the Dutch vase, singularly, repeated, zoomed in or all over, mixed with the clean lines of the materials, like the tulle crêpe de Chine.
The Valentino Bluegrace Collection is already available in every Valentino boutique.
