Valentino's latest collection


Valentino’s latest collection merges historical ideals with modern aesthetics, infusing everyday elements with haute couture.

Valentino’s Haute Couture Autumn and Winter 2023-24 collection, themed ‘Un Château’, transcends the mere physicality of a castle to express a profound philosophy. For Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, the château is a metaphysical entity, a symbol of liberation from historical constraints. This season, the runway witnessed a redefined narrative – a celebration of simplicity amidst complexity.

Pierpaolo Piccioli reimagines haute couture, infusing it with contemporary sensibilities. The collection’s essence lies in paradoxes – a blend of simplicity within complexity. The garments, streamlined and precise, move with the body, reflecting a fusion of past ideals and present attitudes.

The show’s pièce de résistance lies in the transformation of everyday pieces into extraordinary haute couture. Clothes flow, materials are lightened, draperies freeze fabric in motion and flat shoes liberate movement, while vintage denim metamorphoses into canvas for intricate embroidery, creating a line that excites curiosity and demands a closer look.

Valentino’s collection captures a tension between opulent interiors and the freedom of nature, the clothes mirroring the duality of this transition. ‘Un Château’ becomes an inclusive space, challenging preconceptions and beckoning a new era of beauty and equality.
