Shunning the bright lights and loud music usually used at catwalk shows, Valentino set the mood for its Autumn/Winter 2016/2017 ready-to-wear collection with dim lighting and a live piano performance.

The show began with dark tones -- coats and long tulle skirts. The colors then became lighter with pale pink dresses which came with long sleeves, high necks, ruffled chiffon decoration, colorful patterned prints and shiny sequins.
