Valentino Fall/Winter 2017-2018 collection
Subtle disruption. Gentle distortion. Defining a man through what he wears and how he wears it. Gentleman. Or rather: gentle, man.
Observing classicality through the lens of visceral expression, profound essence is captured and altered, as in a painting by Francis Bacon. With a glitch.
Casentino fabric, checkered wools, leather, patent leather: the alphabet. Ratifying outerwear, the small pullover, the shirt with plastrons: the vocabulary. The slim bowtie, the technical sneakers, the cap: the punctuation. Free and personal compositions.
Unbalanced volumes.Details out of place. Jamie Reid’s slogans and punk lettering within Couture intarsia. The absolute synthesis maintains truth and authenticity, without reverences.
Gentle individuality that sprouts from the not thinking exceedingly to what one wears. Instinctively.
