Valentino invites us to an exciting and meaningful journey. Designers Maria Grazia Chiuru and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired this season by the hottest continent, Africa. The Spring/Summer 2016 campaign was shot in the Amboseli National Park in Kenya. Tribal motifs, geometric prints with a color palette of ivory, dark red, forest green and ebony combined with earthy tones. The Italian label tapped Steven McCurry, a photographer who became famous for his "Afghan girl", which was the cover photo of the June issue of National Geographic in 1985. "The idea of these pictures is to take the wiever on a journey" said McCurry. The advertisement also featured the local Maasai people, so we can see the connection of the embellished dresses, jewelleries, hand painted bags and the environment. Harmony, calmness, wilderness treasures.
