Two forms of beauty
In the Pre-Fall 2019 collection Valentino compares two ideas of beauty. One of them seeks to balance symmetry and harmony, while the second on the other hand is carried in the spirit of asymmetries and highlights what is unstable. Valentino thus leads a dialogue between excellence and imperfection - all in high-end, stylish red & black since it is precisely these colours that dominate the collection!

Divine music experience
In addition to a fashion show where you could admire these luxury models, the guests were provided with a unique musical performance. The composition of the Desert Stilts was played on a piano, accompanied by its strings, by artist Angèle David-Guillou.
Play of contrasts
The luxury collection of Pre-Fall 2019 shows an evident play of contrasts. During its creation, creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli focused in particular on shapes and materials and combined what is at first glance uncombinable - tulle sheer skirts and lace together with down jackets!

It alternates between drama and oversize
The designer focused primarily on the shades of red and black, dramatic, sharp and oversize cuts, bold ruching and details. Some of the models were embellished by the Valentino logo, symbol of a crescent and in some cases also flowers or geometric patterns. The combination of these elements ensured the keeping of the hallmark of romance which is encoded in the DNA of the fashion house.
Favourite of Luxury Prague Life:
One of the main stars of the fashion show was daughter of Cindy Crawford, Model Kai Gerber, who is present to nearly any notable fashion show. Which of the outfits from the Pre Fall 2018 collection took the fancy of our editors? The luxury black dress with a smooth top and a deep round neckline created in combination with a richly ruched skirt - perfect drama, wow!
Are you interested to find out why was it Tokyo of all places that Valentino chose as the venue? The reason is unexpectedly simple...
"I love the Japanese culture," said Pierpaolo Piccioli.
Dangerous dose of femininity!
Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli knows perfectly well how to lead the Valentino brand in the right direction. His collection of Pre Fall 2019 makes a confident and overall super stylish impression on me. First of all, I especially like the interplay of different cuts, combination of materials and as the French say la féminité, i.e. a dangerous dose femininity.
One of my top favourites is the deep red chunky fur, which perfectly matches the ribbon of the red blouse. For some it may be a bit wild and ostentatious, but it will definitely light up the otherwise gloomy greyness of winter days. And, after all, that is what it´s all about. To be elegant, chic and mainly yourself!
But what did on the contrary look cheap thanks to being overly decorated? In my opinion definitely the red evening gown worn by model Kai Gerber. Red frilled hurricane is if from the film "Village" (2004)... You wouldn´t want to wear that to the Viennese opera ball. But it would certainly suffice for the Czech one.
