Inspired by the spirit of the early 20th century dance company and also mixed with Pablo Picasso’s and Coco Chanel’s pieces, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative directors from Valentino made a Men’s Fall 2015 collection that celebrated artistry in all its forms. They’ve tested their creativity with new elements but didn’t want to leave their heritage in haute couture behind, as stated by Chiuri.  While Piccoli Said that the look reflected the changing nature of men, which they could be fragile and strong at the same time, and the important thing’s this collection was about freedom to be whoever you wanted to be.

Presented in geometric panels on a gray coat, or in soften colors on a sleek leather blouson, the motifs were layered in a kind of visual call and response. To give you an insight: A textured wool coat with irregular horizontal stripes that split open to show a glimpse of a contrasting patterned sweater. The oversized patch pockets were used as color blocks on sweaters and outerwear, including a standout zip-up coat with caramel leather pockets.
