“Couture is made for emotions, dreams,” says
All of Couture’s transporting qualities were on show when the designer took his Roman atelier to Beijing’s Summer Palace for a glorious, one-off couture show. The glittering, silver-painted faces of the models, the imposing caped gowns and twinkling crystal catsuits and veils had a combined magnificence that was almost overwhelming. Piccioli called it his Valentino Daydream. Don’t wake us.
