Italian fashion house Valentino has been a fixture in the Paris Fashion Week line-up for years. That is, until the pandemic led the house to show a couple of collections in Italy. But for spring/summer 2022, Valentino is back in Paris with a runway show at Le Carreau du Temple in the city's third arrondissement.
With menswear and womenswear shown together, there's an inkling that we may be seeing revived references by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli from Valentino's storied archive. While it's something that Piccioli has repeatedly done, the house's show press kit included stills of vintage Valentino, including one of Valentino jeans for the spring/summer 1985 season (seen in the photo above). Perhaps, this time around, the nods will be more obvious?
Watch the Valentino spring/summer 2022 runway show live here, as we bring you the action straight from Paris Fashion Week.
