Roses are red, Valentino’s BlueGrace collection has arrived in store and our wardrobes are ready for more, more, more. Inspired by the aesthetic of Dutch pottery, known as Delft, the Valentino world has been painted in a wonderland of blue hues for AW20. The 16th century Dutch potters decorated their work with these navy blue motifs, which can also be traced back at Maison Valentino to the Haute Couture AW ’68-69 collection, and then again in the AW 2013-14 collection. Now, Pierpaolo Piccioli has splashed the floral Valentino BlueGrace motif onto a selection of handbags and dresses for every occasion. Blue really is the warmest colour. The collection is available now online and in stores. Go blue.
