Paris: Italian designer Pierpaolo Piccioli went for an explosion of bold colours at Valentino’s Haute Couture collection, switching from mustard yellow to fuchsia to azure with supermodel Gigi Hadid walking in purple.

Clashing textures with silks, woollen fringes and pom poms also gave the outfits a subtle complexity. Some models wore ornate beaded hats in the style of traditional tribal headpieces.

 

American actress Gwyneth Paltrow and models Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell figured among the stars on the front row at the Paris runway show late on Wednesday.

Hadid sported a kimono-inspired lilac gown, complete with gemstone-encrusted white, jade and orange embroidery and a colossal bow resting askew on her shoulders.

Piccioli has been Valentino’s sole creative director since 2016 but has been with the label since 1999. His bouffant dresses and vibrant use of colour have garnered the brand fresh acclaim after founder Valentino Garavani retired in 2007.

One surprise on the runway came in a green dress and glittering trench coat, as 75-year-old model Lauren Hutton wowed the crowd in four-inch mustard heels and sparkling fuchsia gloves.

The fashion house said in a note that the collection aimed to celebrate individuality, diversity and inclusivity.

After the finale, Piccioli walked the runway hand-in-hand with the team of women and seamstresses who crafted the intricate pieces.
