VI Valentina Ilardi for Milan Fashion Week SS’23 Titled: RETRO-FUTURE | Images by Peppe Tortora

Dear Shaded Viewers,

In what was set up to be a live installation, the talented designer imagined a vision of the future crossed by poetic asynchrony, the materials and colors of the collection by Valentia Ilardi established a dystopian relationship with the design elements in the Nilufar gallery in Milan. See leggings and lace, nude mesh and tulle skirts, chokers and velvet harnesses. A parallel meta-verse that draws on a feminine point of view. The collaboration was curated by Alessio de’Navasques. It’s the Golden Age circa 2022 streetwear aesthetics with a hint of Berlin clubbing. Enjoy the images that are meant to inspire the same energy.
