I love this look for so many reasons. I did back then – in January when I attended the Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 show in New York – and I still do today. But the funny thing was that that particular morning before the show, a thought crossed my mind – only for a few seconds – something along the line of “is this too much?” I almost never doubt any of my looks, especially not when a look feels so “me”, but the bright pink hair made me wonder… To much pink? To many prints clashing? Is my free interpretation of the Valentino Resort collection was a bit “too free”?
Luckily this feeling left my brain as fast as it entered it, and I closed my hotel room door behind me, heading all the way downtown to see the beautiful Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 show in the Beekman Hotel. On the two top floors of this grand hotel, with bright beautiful natural light coming in from the roof, formed the runway for punk elegance by PierPaolo Piccioli’s Pre-Fall 2017 solo collection. Remember that red sequin dress… and those sneakers under some of his dresses? You know me quite well by now, so I’m sure you agree that this collection was 100% blowing my mind – and still does…
And then of course, the Pre-Fall show was quickly followed by his Couture and Ready-to-Wear shows in Paris. Where did the time go?
