Sorry about playing on words, but it was really necessary. Apart from the fact that we share the same name, at this stage it is extremely urgent to comment about the latest pieces launched by Pierpaolo Piccioli for Maison Valentino. Maybe we are already witnessing one of the biggest trend of coming Spring season. In any case I loved discovering that new collection is fresh, colourful and pleasantly young. The Italian designer – and I like to remind that he comes from beautiful Nettuno – is continuing his renewal of the historic brand conserving the elegance wanted by Mr Garavani. All pieces could be clothes specifically created for vivacious cheer leaders (like the grey sweater with pink Valentino logo re-invented with a new lettering – available on mytheresa.com),
You will notice that an innovative combination of pink – red – white is a central theme of Valentino next Spring/Summer collection, if you have a look to hot red, high-waisted denim shorts with butterfly-shaped embroideries all over it (on mytheresa.com) to be worn with the logo-printed T-shirt (on mytheresa.com) – born from a collaboration with Zandra Rhodes who designed the print – tucked into it, if you want to achieve a daring effect. Highlight your beautiful legs with the Rockstud suede sandals put on the college-inspired short socks (both on luisaviaroma.com).
Complete your girlish look with the “Pink is punk” scarf in cotton (size 60 x 60 cm – available on luisaviaroma.com)…but a college student can not be called like this without a bomber jacket, so here you are Valentino’s short version in pink jersey with high-neck and central zip fastening in white colour (on matchesfashion.com).
Also the green colour – in a sporty pea shade – is an other tone protagonist of Valentino’s collection that has combined it with white in several pieces. If you need the right outfit for a weekend stay in the country – or if invited to a tennis match… – I suggest the fitted sweater with contrasting stripes on the cuffs and the light blue high-waisted cropped jeans (on matchesfashion.com). Then, try the new iconic accessory proposed by the brand in wide range of colours: I am talking about the Free Rockstud leather lanyard with PVC window that really is an object stolen from the sports world (on matchesfashion.com). What about the shoes? Stay comfy with the white sneakers with patent leather band on it (on luisaviaroma.com)
