Pierpaolo Piccoli’s ability to conjure a technicolour vision on the runway has become a hallmark of his tenure at Valentino. For his Valentino Pink PP collection for Fall/Winter 2022, he took it to the extreme by stripping the palette to just one hue: pink.
While that jubilant colour was the order of the day and evident in the decor of the set and the majority of the 81-look collection, it is important to note that a segment of the show – Looks 41 to 73 – were presented in head-to-toe black.

Walking to synth band Yazoo’s ‘Only You’ and Cocteau Twins’ ‘Cherry-Coloured Funk’, models were a surreal vision in their fully monochromatic wardrobe that adopted a rosy pink hue called “Pink PP”. This bespoke colour which gave the collection its moniker was created specially by Piccoli and colour authority Pantone Color Institute.
Here, a look at some of our show notes from one of Valentino’s most breathtaking shows yet.
