Valentino: Comfort zone

What Men Wear in Spring/Summer 2017

Whenever you think military style is finally passé, it goes and makes a comeback. This time at Valentino. The collection is dominated by shades of green, camouflage patterns, dungarees, flight suits and insignia. It’s only at second glance that you realise how the designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli deconstructed the uniform to create something personal, not at all military: with soft, comfortable, embroidered, feel-good fabrics and cuts.
