Valentino Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

There are few designer houses, which have more than 40 looks prepared for a pre-fall show. There are few who generally have over 60, no matter what season they are going for. Yet, we are faced with a rather spectacular eighty-four looks from the Valentino pre-fall 2016 collection alone, shown but two weeks shy of the men’s couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Picciolo. It is crazy, it is awesome and there are more outfits here than we can imagine trying on to figure out our purchase.

Valentino Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

The themes are interesting as well, for there is a sort of travel involved, the looks seemingly spanning worlds at a time and showing off architecture and monuments in combination. It appears that the merger is of the West, mostly covering New York and Americana, with a Japanese fusion in the Far East. The main pieces seem to be ones, where New York is personified, colorful and full of stars on top, the Chrysler building deftly created out in metallic sequins.

What accounted for the Japanese designs included an emphasis on the natural, from wabi-sabi embroideries of cherry blossoms to clouds and flying birds, all appearing on outerwear that featured tradition quilted lining.

What we see a lot of are long-sleeved dresses and pajama sets, button down and pleated skirts; there’s a karate gi with a tie-dye treatment, as well as the depiction of Mount Fuji combined with red, white and blue fireworks all around, as seen on a mini dress and a double face coat.

The whole of the Valentino pre-fall 2016 collection is positively delightful, from the neon colored cat on a black leather skirt and jacket collection, appearing as if it is a children’s drawing on a blackboard, to the gorgeous Frozen style dress with the long sleeves and the blue ocean spray design, ombre in is color and positively regal in its cut. Of course, the subtleness of such pieces is counteracted by the crazy graffiti colors seen on other such jackets, the New York look really bringing in the wackiness, while the Japanese being all about burst of color in a tasteful manner.

Tall boots also seem to be a thing here, alongside pretty denim that has been cuffed at the bottom, sheer jackets with tufts of fur and even a few ferocious dragon images on the ladies with the sweaters.

All in all, Valentino is by far one of the best designer collections and when it comes to pre-fall they certainly know what they are doing, hands down. We have been fans of Valentino for years now and it only seems to keep getting better as they give their fans exactly what they want and need, filling closets up with both casual pieces and the sexier looks, the gowns that may be seen on the red carpets and the simple everyday dresses that are so very much loved by us all. At the end of the day, Valentino tops it all with its creativity and sheer attention to every last detail in their work.
