Unlike previous season's very obvious invite, Valentino is keeping things rather mum about the autumn/winter 2020 menswear collection. There's nary a print or a hint of colour for the season's teaser. But perhaps it actually is a signal of what to expect from Pierpaolo Piccioli for autumn/winter 2020—simplicity in monochromatic colourways.
That could very well be it, especially with the choice of venue that the runway show will be staged in. While a lot of fashion brands have taken to the grandeur of the Grand Palais as the backdrop to their collections, Valentino will make a return to the less-spacious Galerie Courbe within the building . The curved space could make the perfect setting for a collection that's all about sleek silhouettes and well-cut tailoring.
But we're just making guesses, of course.
