Minimal look, floaters and feathers: the lightness of summer told by Valentino's essentiality

Very elegant silhouettes, soft, elegant to the point of becoming regal: these are the projections of what the spring / summer 2023 wardrobe will be like. Colorful, bright, sensual and red, Valentino Red. Yes, because after the wonderful fuchsia that sanctioned the new Valentino era, turning the iconic red that has become a vibrant pink to the maximum, the iconic Rosso Valentino returns to sanction a unique discourse, a line between past and present that allows itself even some rewinds. And when if not in summer, when there is a great desire for freedom and sensuality and the opportunity to live them to the fullest and with passion.

Unboxing: Valentino's spring / summer 2023 that enhances the purity of the minimal look

Valentino's summer collection, presented at Paris Fashion Week 2022 , focuses on the beauty of lines and shapes that are modeled on the body, a concept very dear to the creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli who not recently with his Anatomy Couture , remembered that not only ready to wear but also the couture dress is at the service of the body and not vice versa.

Compared to the show staged in Trinità dei Monti this summer, we return to essentiality: there is no lack of effervescent details such as sequins, bright fabrics and feathers but everything is dried, reduced to the essential. The protagonist is the beauty of the fabric that falls on the body and writes a new story. Color and shape, are the two refrains of Unboxing , a continuous discovery and surprise, as it marks the return of the red that you do not expect and that momentarily takes the place of fuchsia, which was in the front row but not exceptionally arrived on the catwalk.

The nuances we will wear next summer: a balance of bright and pastel shades

From black to brown, from blush to lilac and again yellow, green, blue, Pierpaolo Piccioli, who has been described by fashion critics as the best colorist in the world, creates color shows: the light blue blazer or long dress blush in sequins, bright but not whimsical, they describe a new concept of elegance, just as it is clear that the trend of next summer will be to discover the back. Less cut outs and more wide necklines that will enhance the back in the rediscovery of an innocent sensuality.

New features include the V logo pattern that transforms into a grid already worn by those present in the front row – the wonderful black look of Zendaya – and which is enhanced by contrasting blush-red and gray-black, brown-simple colors. or with a lamé effect offering all-over designer looks. The new design that we will see on many of the maison's garments will be for next summer and will undoubtedly multiply the trend of the pattern look.
