One of my personal highlights of this last Paris Fashion Week will certainly be the Valentino Men's show. Not only because it was my first time attending, but also because this moment was enhanced by the precious presence of FKA Twigs, who performed live three songs from her second album "Magdalene" (which I have been listening to almost every day since it came out).
For Autumn/Winter 2020, Pierpaolo Piccioli explores a new kind of sensitivity and romanticism, concepts that keep evolving just like nowadays men. The designer tries to fill the gap between how men should feel and how they should appear, that intimacy that represents an imperturbable conversation between the individual, with what he wears and what he wants to communicate with it.
In this conversation, the sartorial is once again of crucial worth, with a new perspective that doesn't necessarily follow fixed rules. A new structured, lean and fluid silhouette is then presented. The subtle colour palette includes ivory, burgundy, blue and black.
This sketch, created during the show, is part of my Paris Fashion Week AW20 live illustrated coverage for L'Officiel Hommes Italia.
