Valentino Spring 2024: The New Masculine Aesthetic

The Fashionisto / Published June 27, 2023

Valentino unveiled its spring-summer 2024 menswear collection in Milan, christened The Narratives. It explores the depth of contradictions, introducing an alternative masculine aesthetic that unites strength with vulnerability, power with tenderness, and perfection with flaws.

At the heart of this new collection lies a bold choice of colors—inspired by couture—that radiate personality and bring a burst of vibrant energy to the men’s wardrobe. The collection shows a deft interplay of these hues across the entire collection, from ready-to-wear pieces to accessories.

Among the accessory additions, Valentino broadens its Garavani range with designs that embody simplicity and necessity, crafted in vivid shades. A significant highlight of the collection is the reimagined Garavani Locò bag, which flaunts a fresh palette and a highly compact size, adding an exciting twist to a staple piece.

Footwear, too, expands its family with three novel styles—loafers adorned with studs, assertive combat boots, and a sneaker that draws inspiration from the world of athletics. These eclectic additions provide a hint of boldness to the otherwise pared-down elegance of the collection.

An intriguing facet of the collection is the profound influence of Hanya Yanagihara’s novel, A Little Life. The novel’s poignantly deep lines breathe life into the designs, reflecting the enduring power of literature on fashion. This collection pays homage to Yanagihara’s beautiful use of language inherent in the novel, carving a unique niche for Valentino in the heart of literature and fashion enthusiasts.

Exemplifying the fusion of fashion and literary influence, the collection’s silhouettes are enriched with symbolic structures and evocative texts. The formal segment of the collection also sees a significant transformation, with stiffness making way for a more organic, human touch. Echoing the spirit of the season, the collection embraces lightweight and bright materials, exuding an air of nonchalant sophistication apt for spring and summer.

One of the major reveals of this season’s runway was the collaboration between Valentino and the Japanese brand Porter. This partnership marries Italian aesthetics with Japanese meticulousness, culminating in bags with distinctive motifs from both brands.

Valentino continues its fashion narrative with the spring-summer 2024 men’s collection, unfolding a chapter where color, craftsmanship, and literary depth merge into an influential masculine aesthetic.
