Valentino Pre Fall 2017 CollectionFriday, January 20, 2017
Pierpaolo Piccioli staged Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2017 show at the newly refurbished Beekman hotel on Thursday, January 12.
The venue wasn’t happenstance. Piccioli is embarking on a journey as the sole creative director of Valentino, having worked side by side with Maria Grazia Chiuri at the brand for 17 years.
In a preview, he called New York “the land of opportunity, a place where dreams come true,” and Valentino promoted the show on Instagram with evocative shots of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline.
On the soundtrack, Nina Simone sang, “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life. . . and I’m feeling good,” for anyone who didn’t get the message.
