WThe storied fashion house, Valentino, presented its Fall/Winter 2022 PP collection at Paris Fashion Week, turning heads, and fashion writers and devotees simply flocked to pink. You see, the runway ready-to-wear show for Valentino at Le Carreau Du Temple Le Marais was bathed in pink lacquer. Valentino’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, whittled the palette down to a single color – shockingly – hot pink.
Valentino called the all-pink collection “freed from the need for realism.” If ever there was a time in history when society needed such an escape, it is now. Pushing the pause button on reality and sprinting for fantasy is well received.
