Under the arcades of the Summer Palace in Beijing, China, Valentino presented its haute couture collection, marked by a waking dream that blurs the border between reality and desire.
The event was a fantastic meeting between two cultures, like a dream that unfolds before the eyes of the spectators. On the catwalks symbols, colours, decorations merged, while the Italian Renaissance spirit met the opulence of Chinese splendor.
The purity of the volumes was amplified by the beauty of the reds, golds, emerald greens, roses, whites, and blacks, which connected Italian painting to Chinese art. The classic silhouettes and details took on a new form, viewed through a dreamy prism, gaining new meaning.
Next to the show, the brand opened a new store, which touches the metropolitan spirit of the digital and street-savvy generations.
