Valentino Returns to Florence as the Guest of Pitti Uomo!

Valentino made his international debut in Florence in 1962. We  waited for the moment when they were ready to launch a menswear line. Finally, collection is here.

As the guest designer of Pitti Uomo, Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccoli were invited to show their 2012/13 fall winter menswear collection. The setting was the Palazzo Corsini, a beautiful 16th century baroque palace with frescoes on the ceiling–which served to put Chiuri and Piccoli’s modern collection in sharp relief.

The technology and construction matched the modern silhouettes: Fabrics were heat-bonded together and materials used ranged from cashmere to Japanese denim and the color palette was muted–no bright red Valentino red here–only deep forest green, maroons, and navy’s mixed in with all the black.

Streamlined silhouettes–sleek suiting and delicate, light trenches and peacoats which were tented at the back. Chiuri and Piccioli’s models clutched thick leather envelopes that looked just about iPad size.
