Valentino immerses itself in the world of ballet for the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 season with the classical ballerina serving as muse for its creations.
From tutu-inspired skirts in both diaphanous tulle and edgy leather to knitwear and long sweeping coats, the collection recreates a ballerina’s wardrobe onstage and off. Velvet, caftan, cashmere and tulle are but some of the fabrics that make a graceful impression.
Dark ensembles contrast with soft neutral hues. Maxi-length dresses, some in free form and some pleated, in ethereal fabrics capture motion. The effect and silhouette of the tutu are reflected in ruffles, tulle accents, sheer dresses and sparkling crystal details.
