Valentino presents new Mime collection for Spring/Summer 15
Inspired by 18th Century Italian culture
Introducing the stand-out Mime Collection from Valentino's Spring/Summer 2015 lineup, presented in a new hypnotic short film from the Italian design house (video below.) The collection has been inspired by an ancient Italian tradition, The Grand Tour, that saw young school leavers take a cultural trip around Italy's rich artistic and historical sites.
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli fed this influence into their foulard print series that see five variants each pick up either; blossom, leaf, flower eyes, arabesque or flower dot design motifs that set the foundation for a range of accessories.
Bags and shoes branch off from these founding prints, which come in five rich and distinctive colourways. Luxury leather is printed using a cutting edge digital technique, to create luxe a patchwork finish on both the shoe and bag accessories. This stunning new collection brings exquisite detail from 18th Century Italy, and injects it with a modern twist for Spring/Summer 15.
