Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are Roman designers, heading the masterful Valentino Couture Collection. Like delicate pieces of art, they received their inspiration from the Operas in Rome. From theater production to the intricate costume designs, inspiration came in musical form. The usage of musical notes draped across a nude, light evening dress, is innovation at its finest.
“The artisanal tradition strongly relates to the basis of what we do in couture.” Allora: The pathways the models trod on in Paris were hand-painted canvases by the man who does the theater sets in Rome.
Like little ballerinas's, the collection was soft, elegant, and extremely delicate. With every passing tutu, it was as if you entered a different time, and beauty was of another class.
