Valentino Black Tie Collection
An instruction can become an invitation, a dress code can liberate, limitation can free. Equally, universal symbolism can be open to reinterpretations, redefinition. Archetypes can be re-imagined, and a power in the familiar can come from its rediscovery in a new context.
For Fall/Winter 2023, Pierpaolo Piccioli takes black tie at face value, a figure of speech for a collection that builds around pieces drawn from every day. Conjecture and cultural capital are inverted - a symbol of masculine power, an emblem of orthodoxy and restriction, our preconceptions of the tie become theoretical architecture for a collection that toys with rules, emancipating meaning. Its ideological conceit is challenged, ultimately contradicted and redefined entirely.
VALENTINO GARAVANI ROCKSTUD
Since its first appearance on the Valentino Fall/Winter 2010-11 catwalk, the Valentino Garavani Rockstud pump has stated its claim as a truly iconic creation, with a power and relevance that continues to have the same impact today.
Rockstud is not an accessory, it is a state of mind.
Rockstud is not a shoe, it is an attitude.
