and Pier Paolo Piccioli shows a well cut and refined
collection in Paris. Mixing tradition with the new.
Traditions embraced by the Italian and English man.
The shapes for this collection are not radical.
They are rough-and-tumble classics.
Military and safari inspired jackets, camp shirts,
cargo shorts and hooded tops are all part of this
casual collection. The featherlight chambray blazers
are woven through with silk to catch the light.
In this Valentino collection denim. linen and cotton
drill is rather prominent.
A leather version of the camp shirt is soft and pliant
enough to be almost nylon.
The Valentino man can tie all these
A feeling of military and camp mad!
