Fashion: 2022 was the year of Valentino Pink ...... (Part 2)

  
Highlights from the Valentino fashionshow for their F/W 2022 RTW collection. Italian fashion designer and creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli adopted an extreme color strategy for this RTW collection. Every look on his runway was pink - a specifically vivid tone of vibrating fuchsia. Or it was black (will show later on 2 series of black outfits). He said he’d chosen what he called “monotone” to remove distractions and concentrate the viewers’ eyes on distinguishing the differences between silhouette and detail. That theory played out in a huge collection of 81 looks both for menswear and womenswear. The pink went on for 40 silhouettes from head to toe (showed in either extremely high platform shoes or chunky sneakers), in everything from tiny bubble dresses to long, narrow tabards, to crinolined bells; from sweeping opera coats to tailored suits and overcoats.
