SHE WAS 18 WHEN FAME HIT HER. IT WAS CLAIMED THAT “…HER LEGEND WAS A LITTLE MORE OUTRAGEOUS. WHY OUTRAGEOUS? BECAUSE SUCCESS IS A TRIBUTE TO YOUTH AND MONEY”. WHO IS SHE? THE HEROINE OF THE NEW VALETTE COLLECTION. SHE EMBODIES OUR ERA: EVERY DAY IS PEPPERED WITH SURPRISES, HEAT WAVES AND SNOW STRIKE CONCURRENTLY, ALL DESTINIES CAN BE SHAKEN. SHE LISTENS TO THE NEW GENERATION AND WEARS EXCEPTIONAL PIECES.

YOU HAVE TO MOVE WITH THE TIMES.” THE VALETTE AW 2023 COLLECTION EXPLORES ALL POSSIBLE ANTAGONISMS. FABRICS, LINES AND SILHOUETTES ARE ENGINEERED TOGETHER. DETAILS MAKE THE VOLUMES VIBRATE: MOTHER-OF-PEARL BEADS, METAL STUDS, PRECIOUS EMBROIDERIES INSPIRED BY A “LADY’S* WARDROBE. BUT HER CHARACTER IS LAYERED AND FLUID. A SURPRISING AND CONFIDENT OPULENCE CAN BE OBSERVED. SUITS ARE CROSSED WITH UNIFORMS, TUXEDO JACKETS TURN INTO EVENING SHIFTS, AND DELICATE TROUSERS OR SHIRTS TURN THE CLOTHES SOFT AND THE BODIES FRIVOLOUS. TWEED, PAPER-LIKE SILK, RUBBER-COATED COTTON, AND SPORTY MESH, AMONG OTHERS, ENHANCE THIS RICH FEELING. THE COLLECTION TOUCHES ON ALL SENSES: SIGHT, BUT ALSO TOUCH. BLUE AND BLACK, COLOURS THAT DO NOT USUALLY MATCH, ARE COMBINED, WHILE POLKA DOTS AND STRIPES FORM A MOSAIC THAT IS BOTH SPONTANEOUS AND FORMAL. IN A WORD: THE COLLECTION IS OUT TO PLAY. WITH EACH FABRIC AND REPRESENTATION. BUT, TRUE TO FORM, THE VALETTE TOUCH IS NOT FORFEITED: SINCE THE BEGINNING, THE VALETTE SIGNATURE IS ABOUT LEAVING NOTHING TO CHANCE AND DESIGNING SIMPLE, CRAFTED CLOTHES. VALETTE CREATES THE ZEITGEIST, ITS OUTFIT. TO AT. THE COLLECTION CELEBRATES A TASTE FOR BEAUTY.

STRANGERS LIVED IN HER HOME, GIRLS AND BOYS WHO BORROWED HER JUMPERS AND HER RACING CARS. A HAPPY COLLECTION, ABOUT THE SPEED OF THE WORLD (SOFT OR STRUCTURED LINES, BLENDING FORMS), GENDER REVERSAL AND DELICATENESS. WHAT IF TIME HAD COME TO LIVE?
