Resort 2016 Valentino Lace, Silk and Cotton Backless Patchwork Dress
This dress is from the Resort 2016 collection from the house of Valentino. During this time period both Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were acting Creative Directors. It was photoed on Gigi Hadid for the December issue of Vogue that year. as well. Vogue's Nicole Phelps reviewed the collection and said in part: Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli's design signature by now is familiar. Their simple, covered-up, almost prim silhouettes act like a canvas for the embroidery and beadwork of the Roman house's atelier.... Resort found them scaling back not an inch on the detailing, yet the effect was more folksy than flamboyant. ...The workmanship is close to couture, but Chiuri and Piccioli very much intend their pieces to be worn every day. "We were thinking about freedom, and Diana Vreeland's famous quote, 'The eye has to travel,'" Piccioli said.... Beyond the exquisite beadwork, the loveliest pieces were the subtlest: softly pleated dresses both short and long patchworked from different prints and laces. They'll weigh next to nothing in a carry-on; the lucky girl who wears one will win best dressed no matter her location. This dress is exactly one of those patchwork creations mentioned above and it is gorgeous. It is made from a combination of netting, silks, wool, printed cottons and lacework. All of which are masterfully mixed into the stunning patchwork design that you see. I love that the back is open with crossed straps in a deep coral orange. It adds an unexpected touch to the dress. The sleeves are long and left unlined so you get a touch of transparency through the mix of fabrics. The skirt is maxi length and widens out as it nears the floor. The mix of fabric here help it to hold its shape wonderfully. This is new with all original tags and has not been worn. Excellent condition The front bodice and skirt are lined in a nude silk. The straps that go across the back button into place with hidden set buttons. It sips to close at the back waist. Tagged a 46 bit Valentino is cut small so please check actual listed measurements.
