Valentino 50th Anniversary Caspule Collection - Jaguar

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s stylistic approach for Valentino is based on the awareness that innovation is fueled by tradition, and that contrast is the essence of modernity. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the maison, the Creative Directors have launched a special project that combines present and past with dazzling continuity.
Their style is sleek and sharp: inspired by limpid modernism, it exalts a delicate grace.
New balances are achieved through unexpected combinations and a subtle search for the ‘perfect imperfection’. The initial passion behind the brand is revived not through a restyling of the past but with a forward-thinking approach because modernity is timeless.
This capsule collection is a cohesive collection of ready-to-wear and accessories.
A graphic sense of elegance with modular emotional clarity dominates the line. The system is closed, but the elements within can be reconfigured. Contrast is the defining note. Animal prints and pristine lines are featured. Lace brings, clear sense of romanticism to the picture, while rivets and patent leather add a dazzling urban touch.
The sleek collection is composed of silhouettes with crystalline purity transformed into animal print designs that are fierce but never lose their aplomb.
The collection includes iconic outerwear made of double cashmere and wool cloth: the cape with mysterious allure, the cool fitted pea coat, the flowing single – or double- breasted coat, the tunic-poncho, and the boxy top worn over a miniskirt.
Each is made in a different animal print: giraffe, jaguar, tiger, cheetah, zebra, and panther with solid color linings. Lace accentuates the contrast concept and contradicts ferine purity: there are tops and dresses with a band collar, modest yet sexy as well as pleated skirts, and shorts. The silhouette is sleek and legs are revealed.
Accessories complete the capsule collection with animal printed scarves, flat moccasins, derby shoes and Chelsea boots with low heels covered in large square studs, studded bangles, and a small studded velvet hobo bag with a bracelet handle. Produced in a limited number, this capsule collection will be sold in the Valentino boutique and comes with a coordinated animal print shopping bag.
Working with utmost lightness, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli establish their vision of contemporary style in an iconic moment for the maison and they bring it to life without nostalgia, focusing on the evocative power of unusual combinations.
