Last march, maria grazia chiuri and pierpaolo piccioli collaborated with chinese artist liu bolin for the \"lost in fashion\" series for harper\'s bazaar. since then the \"invisible man\" gave them ideas for a capsule collection where the camouflage pattern takes an haute couture feel. in the same way that liu bolin blends into the landscape to create a unique piece, both artistic directors of valentino have given the elegance and the refinement of the famous print, for women as well as men. a presentation as a prelude for the first valentino menswear collection, who will create the event next week in paris.

maria grazia chiuri : we love fashion and we love our job, but our job is also about meeting people that in some way give you inspiration and give you something new, and this moment with liu bolin was very inspiring for us and we have that idea with other things that we love, the street style and the nature of camouflage, but sometimes that could be strange for the valentino brand, but you try to do that, changing the attitude, and this way is really close to valentino because it\'s a really couture camouflage.
pierpaolo piccioli : we wanted to change the idea of camouflage, something so street, we wanted to give it a more interesting attitude with the execution, because we think that camouflage is something that is very known, we wanted to make something known that is very extraordinary.
maria grazia chiuri : we believe in making collections and we are really proud that the new collection next week will be in paris and for us it\'s our first time that we will have our main collection in paris. we think it\'s another way to describe the valentino world, because the man is another part of our world, and we believe that we can describe a new man, traditional, the culture but at the same time, we want something new, for the feel, in the proportions also in the mix of materials, we believe that we can say something new in this sense.
