Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director of Italian fashion label Valentino, has unveiled his first solo Spring/Summer '17 campaign after the departure of Maria Grazia Chiuri to Dior. The new  campaign was shot by celebrated lensman David Sims and features a mix of artistic images of the runway alongside stunning monochromatic portraits of models including Christy Turlington Burns, Liya Kebede, Ratner, Fei Fei Sun, Blesnya Minher and Mali Koopman. "The eternity of a portrait, the immediacy of a documented moment, the poised simplicity of introspection," said Piccioli in an Instagram post. "A campaign that plays with time: what endures and what is unrepeatable."
