Valentino Haute Couture fall winter 2021 2022

Valentino Haute Couture Fall Winter 2021/2022 in Venice is simply stunning

华伦天奴艺术总监 Pierpaolo Piccioli把巴黎高级时装周的最后烟火搬到意大利威尼斯。出于在华伦天奴周围建立艺术家社区的需要,深信绘画之于当代艺术就像高级时装之于时尚一样,艺术总监 Pierpaolo Piccioli 将一群不同年龄、出身和审美倾向的画家带到了工作室他们在对话中永远写在衣服的皮肤上,改变它们的表面,并赋予二维介质上设计的三维特征,从而使想象中被观察和思考的东西动画化。

Pierpaolo Piccioli 依靠 Atelier 工作的炼金术过程,因此也依靠其他工匠的手,通过专注于倾听和过程的缓慢,Pierpaolo Piccioli 翻译了颜色、符号、背景、完整和空虚的叠加线条、剪裁、构图姿势,让每位艺术家都参与到关于礼服本身的二对一对话中。 结果是一系列对话,其中从两个身份的对抗中出现了新的身份,并在礼服中捕捉到了。

Fashion and art are creative practices that respond to different purposes – one linked to the body and movement, the other completely free from constraints of sorts – which nevertheless find a conjunction in the atelier: the place of making, of thinking with the hands, of translating a desire, an idea, a sensation into a tangible object.

Driven by the urge to build a community of makers around Maison Valentino, convinced that painting is to contemporary art what Haute Couture is to fashion, Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli brings a group of painters of all ages, backgrounds, and aesthetic inclinations into the Atelier, involving them in a dialogue that is written forever on the skin of the clothing, transmuting its surfaces, giving three-dimensionality to what is meant to live on a two-dimensional support, animating in movement what is imagined to be observed and contemplated as something still. Relying on the alchemical process of the Atelier work, and therefore on the hands of other makers, focusing on listening and slowness of process, Pierpaolo Piccioli translates the colour layering, the signs, the backgrounds, the full and empty portions into lines, cuts, compositional gestures, involving each artist in a conversation entre deux on the dress itself. The result is a collection of dialogues in which a new identity emerges from the confrontation of two, and is captured in the dress.

This experimental and metamorphic process rhythms a collection that summarizes the Couture codes of Valentino, from floating hats to grandiose ball gowns, loading them with vibrant colours, fluidifying them in nonchalant draping and movement. The silhouette is long and layered, or short and sculptural. Clothes open up possibilities, for both women and men, in which the virtuosity of the workmanship dissolves in ineffable, effortless lightness. Maintaining their healthy otherness, fashion and art meet in an experiment of translation, in a gesture that expresses unity and community spirit.
