Celebrities at the VALENTINO L’École Show

Celebrities attended the VALENTINO L’École Spring/Summer 2024 show. The glorious collection was recently unveiled at the École des Beaux-Arts during Paris Fashion Week. Creative Director of the Maison, Pierpaolo Piccioli employs a new VALENTINO technique, altorillevo, sculpting ornate motifs into seemingly seamless three-dimensions, creating forms that frame the body, which was seen on top model Kaia Gerber, who opened the show.

The body, representative of freedom; the female body, emblematic of emancipation.

The VALENTINO L’École Spring/Summer 2024 collection by Pierpaolo Piccioli serves to highlight the body, in a celebration of femininity and humanity. A reflection of an ideology, an expression of intimacy and individuality, the result conveys a fundamentally feminist aim – independence of the body from the male gaze or societal expectation, an agency. Comfort in one’s own skin.

Nakedness is presented as a natural state, rather than a means of provocation – an assertion of the liberation at the core of creation. Fashion is made to clothe the body, yet here it enters into a rapport, an essential exchange between the garment and the woman within, aiming to transform our perceptions of the nude. Eschewing notions of sexuality and exploding clichés of glamour, the collection explores a personal sensuality, a vital interrelationship of cloth and body.

Singer FKA Twigs serenaded the show; her performance placed physicality at the centre of expression, creating sound with both body and voice, together with the dancers.
