Le Blanc, the All White Capsule Collection at Valentino Bal Harbour
“There are a couple of things I love — denim, a tuxedo for women, some things that are interesting to reinvent but the white shirt is one of the most interesting. It’s like a white toile,” said Creative Director of Valentino Pierpaolo Piccioli during a recent interview. He goes onto say, “I wanted to work on something universal, to get back to the essence of shape and volume. So I worked on the idea of the white shirt, but treating it with a couture sensibility.”
Le Blanc, presented during the Valentino Spring/Summer 2020 Show, is a special collection, designed by Piccioli with the aim to take couture to the streets. Now on display for a limited time, the Valentino Bal Harbour boutique will be home to the most coveted pieces of this special collection.
The essential pieces of the wardrobe, such as the white shirt, the shirtdress, the dress, the pencil skirt and the Bermuda shorts pay homage to the iconic 1968 “Jackie O.” All White collection. Cool and crisp to the touch, this extraordinary collection invites you to embrace the care behind each item of clothing. Made with the lightness of poplin, the Le Blanc blouses feature a variety of sleeve types and lengths with unique feather and embroidered applications that you’ll want to see in person for yourself at the Bal Harbour boutique.
“The white shirt is the most democratic and most universal, but it can also be the most individual” garment, according to Pierpaolo Piccioli. Working with just one color that would inspire the entire capsule collection allowed the brand to showcase its namesake artistry of Italian craftmanship, in which incredibly complex techniques are applied to each of the Le Blanc pieces. Additionally, the boutique is offering the new Valentino Garavani SuperVee bag in all-white among some of the many white handbags and accessories accompanying the collection.
With spring approaching next month, the Valentino Le Blanc collection is a testament to the everlasting elegance of an all-white look. Discover the full collection at Valentino Bal Harbour available for purchase for a limited time only.
