Valentino has been quick to pivot to phygital. But if his couture offering last season was any indication, it’s clear Pierpaolo Piccioli remains unswayed in his love for grandeur and live spaces—last season took place at Rome’s opulent Galleria Colonna, Sala Grande. This autumn/winter 2021, the Italian house will be staging its show at the historical Piccolo Teatro di Milano, Italy’s first permanent and public theatre. With the closure of theatres and performing arts spaces like the rest of the world, Valentino’s upcoming show seems to signal a timely commentary on our collective yearning for live connection. And the clothes? We’ll have to wait and see.
Tune in tonight at 9pm Singapore time to watch the Valentino autumn/winter 2021 show right here.
