Valentino is writing a new chapter in the history of the fashion with the fashion show Tuesday night in Tokyo, of his pre-fall 2019-2020. Until very recently, homes that are not organized such events for this précollection supposed to be more commercial than the line of the parade, main and especially, in the shop at the beginning of the season. A concept clearly gone in the light of this show orchestrated in the japanese capital eternally fond of western brands. Four-twenty-ten crossings, including twenty masculine silhouettes emphasize the connections between the DNA of the roman house and the codes of the Country of the Rising Sun, under the artistic direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli that is fully invested in this event.

The red, and acted scarlet of the sun on the flag nippon and colours favorite of the founder

In common, there are red, representation in scarlet of the sun on the flag of the country, colors favorite of Mr. Valentino himself. Piccioli takes it over to silhouettes, to floors, to the shirring crushed, the large pockets, ruffles asymmetric mishandle a couture spirit. From the outset, we think these designers are japanese who, in the 1970s and 1980s, came to heckle the purr of the presentations in paris with silhouettes, questioning the construction of the garment to make it more daily. The references to the work of Rei Kawakubo, Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto are also just as subtle. Winks to the contemporaneity of more young people such as Jun Takahashi (Undercover) and Chitose Abe (Cardigan) are also evident in this dressing, which excels by its parts of the day.

The girls move in flat shoes, or even sneakers. The same goes for the boys wearing sneakers at logo home worked in the round as a “kamon”, dressed in pleated monochrome. A wave to Hokusai draws on some of the silhouettes. The denim japanese woven together a few outfits from head to toe… The designer has the knack to embrace the multiple aspects of the local culture without paying in the tribute too supported.
