Milan, December 1, 2015 – We love transitional collections because big labels tend to exercise a lot more creative freedom and test the waters for new concepts. Take Maria Grazia Chiuri & Pierpaolo Piccioli’s latest work under the Red Valentino line for Pre-Fall 2016. Pure gold. The 1970s inspired boho looks look more luxe than thrift with incredible pieces throughout the 50-look collection. Bold prints and botanical motifs are big going into Fall 2016 and Valentino capitalizes on this. Less into the ethereal, dark, Ophelia-esque looks – its the in-your-face mix of fabrics and clashing patterns that would make Miuccia proud that gets us. If you can snag any of these pieces, good on you. Transitional collections like this one are a great way to stand out from the crowd.
