Review: RED Valentino Resort 2017

Acne Studios Resort 2017. Woodland creatures make a cameo.

RED Valentino's "girl" this season tells her own story by gathering inspiration from couture pieces, but giving them a modern — and more wearable — twist.  Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by Grey Gardens, a 1975 American documentary about reclusive women living in a derelict mansion in East Hampton, New York. Appropriately, the clothes captured a garden-like environment; beautiful hummingbird prints were spotted on airy skirts, tiered dresses, and jeans alike, alongside heaps of florals and tree prints

The overall collection was fresh and breezy and it could ideally work for transition pieces to be worn into next spring.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
