REDValentino’s Fall/Winter 2019-20 Pre-Collection is a celebration of dreamers. And what better way to do it than celebrating artists, the people who turn dreams, in reality, every day through their work? This season, REDValentino pays homage to dreams through a very unique collaboration with a series of young artists-to-be from Rome’s Accademia di Belle Arti. Twenty-three students from one of the most important and ancient academies of fine arts in Italy pose in the spaces where they grow and create, adding their very own individual touch to this season’s collection, shot by photographer Luca Strano and videographer Giada Bossi. As always, the clothes present a duality of toughness and grace, as a line-up of feminine fabrics such as point d’esprit is contrasted with heavier boots and soft combat details. Floral embroideries cover midi and maxi dresses, the perfect romantic choice for a day-to-night look. Eclecticism and Romanticism are partners, as dresses are paired with sneakers for a more casual yet unique look. This season’s selection of REDBallet and Glam Run Sneakers also appear in new colourways such as bright pink and cerulean blue, as well as a fiery red. The celebration of uniqueness and individuality is key, and what better way to do it than by wearing REDValentino?
