Valentino Is Inspired by Memories of Africa in Spring/Summer Collection

“I had a house in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong hills,” is one of the best in the history of cinema and belongs to the beginning of the film out of Africa. Creative designers of Valentino: Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri have created all a collection inspired by Africa, a place full of nuances and colours, which is perfectly reflected in the new proposals by the firm for the spring/summer 2016.

The color palette they have a vital importance in the Valentino spring/summer 2016 collection, since it is a continent full of color. The tones used to dress designs range from the terracotta, ochre, Brown, red, blue… That Yes, darker version.

Dresses remain garment star collections of Valentino. For the new season dresses (both long and short) we propose sober style with fabrics such as lace, leather, silk, grid… Unique primitive details to get that touch African sought-after as fringe, African crafts colors, tack, animal print, tie dye…

The accessories complemetan looks with great success. Necklaces are made in white terracotta African-themed or with wooden masks (the masks are a leitmotiv in all Parade). Sandals and bags are made with details of Maasai crafts with beads and bead colors. To top it off the models they carry a hairstyle of braids and dredges, a novelty since Valentino usually bet on much more delicate and bucolic hairstyles.
