The show <Temporal Code> directed by Pier Paolo Piccioli, the currently creative director at Maison Valentino, opens up the Haute Couture tradition to include both Womens and Mens looks, broadening a definition to the whole of humanity. He focuses on the human within the garment, highlighting the towering heels, exposed shoulders, and coats scattered with nets of embroidered bows.
The vibrant simplicity is the highlight of the collection. Pier Paolo Piccioli gets rid of all the unnecessary details and decorations and brings his show crossing time and tradition to install the contemporary values. Timelessness of the handmade is a celebration of the human: a dance between the mind and the body, between objects and individuals. Models were all wearing the golden and silver glitter materials on their faces to bring touches of shimmering highlight a palette of natural bases.
<Temporal Code> describes the craft and emotionality of Couture, the mastery of the handmade as a timeless code and a value. The human touch as the most valuable element. A chronological transference of pattern and code represent the elevating process through discovery and surprise. Long silhouettes are brought higher with exaggerated, metallic platform heels for the show to reach the classic rituals and processes updating to express the human.
Below are the original descriptions from this Valentino Haute Couture Show:
- Through a vocabulary of texture and form, the fabric as a material elevated by handwork, as a texture that incites discovery and surprise.
- A gold lamé hoodie is presented before a fluorescent green structured gown to create a conversation on detail and simplicity.
- Like fluorescent organza and ivory silk— mix together for a conversation on texture, form and indulgence.
- An accumulation of elements, stripped of every evident artifice.
