VOGUE.COM: The designers (Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino) said they were drawn to Fiorucci for the pre-Instagram, pre-Internet, pre-everything time he represented in fashion, for the joy of discovery a trip to his store guaranteed. We can’t vouch for the store (its demise predated our arrival in the city), but we can vouch for this collection. It was a delight all the way through. SEE THE FULL COLLECTION here @ VOGUE

Just bought the pic above on ebay from seller “Legsla”. Man, has this person got an AMAZING collection. Selling each photo for around $5. Haven’t even gone through all of them… but here are a few faves!
style.com: 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. “We were thinking about freedom, and Diana Vreeland’s famous quote, ‘The eye has to travel,'” Piccioli said via phone from Rome where they’re working on their men’s and couture collections. Their reference points ranged far and near, encompassing vibrant Native American motifs, made in collaboration with the artist Christi Belcourt, a member of Canada’s Métis tribe, and the garden flowers and animals that have been part of their vocabulary at Valentino for years. see the full collection here.
