Forum Members Review Pierpaolo Piccioli’s All-Black Valentino Collection for Fall 2024

Staged within the decadent interiors of the historic Hôtel de Maisons, Pierpaolo Piccioli declared black is the new ‘PP Pink‘ with the unveiling of Valentino’s Fall 2024 collection, having served up an all-black lineup on day seven of Paris Fashion Week. Often renowned and celebrated for his mastery of vivid color, Piccioli took a bold departure this season by embracing an exclusively black palette for a collection aptly titled “Le Noir”. The Italian fashion designer who has been the solo creative force behind Valentino since 2016, fixated upon the romantic and ultra-feminine codes of the iconic Italian fashion house this season, focusing on rosettes, ruffles, lace and intricate embroidery detailing as opposed to color.

Read below the reactions of theFashionSpot’s forum members:

“Pink, blue, black. Doesn’t he get bored with the co lour shtick?” [LadyJunon]

“Funeral march. I’m ready for him to move on.” [Salvatore]

“Autopilot.” [yslforever]

“There’s something very ‘early 2010s pre-collection’ about this and honestly I’m not mad at it. Boring and unoriginal, but it at least looks pretty luxe and isn’t as aesthetically ghastly as some of Pierpaolo’s recent offerings.” [Steddycam91]

“Beautiful, but boring beyond belief. It’s clearly product-driven because it’s basically soulless.” [GoldenPetals]

“It’s good, but not great. Certainly one of his best RTW shows. Of course it’s incomparable to couture, but a major improvement. I will say that it did not have to be all black. Something about that shows uncertainty. He used the black as a security blanket. Some of these pieces would have been better in color.” [GivenchyHomme]

“For a Brand that has such a great approach to color and print combinations, I find it very depressing and I miss both elements a lot. The evening ear is beautiful though!” [Kite]

“It’s an exquisite, elegant and luxurious collection. I think that’s what Maison Valentino has always been about so for me this presentation was definitely an achievement. There’s nothing new but we can see an interesting play with shapes, lengths and fabrics. all the lace looked sumptuous! Also, I absolutely love all-black outfits and looks so this was personally, a treat.” [WAVES]

“J’adore! Beeeeaaautiful garments, great casting and everything looked expensive!” [Ihhbl]

“Those black patent 80’s pump! Heavenly! I didn’t expect much from him but it was such a nice surprise. A very beautiful collection! It was insanely glamorous, diverse and grown up. That’s what I’m looking for!

I really love the wardrobe approach and there are some exquisite pieces. Bravo PPP!” [Lola701]
