Packed in our dream summer tote is pair of espadrilles, a paper-light dress, a brightly hued swimsuit and a towel embroidered with the words ‘Saint Tropez’: the place we long to be in. While Saint Tropez might be a far-off thought, and staycation more a realistic possibility, our dream summer wardrobe is a reality thanks to Valentino’s Escape Capsule.
From the autumn 2020 collection, the capsule by Pierpaolo Piccioli is comprised of airy silhouettes that sit softly on the skin; with ethereal dresses, chic cover-ups and sumptuous scarves that float in the wind. Drawing inspiration from the maison’s archival prints — particularly focused on eclectic patterns from the ‘70s — Valentino Escape merges logo motifs in flamboyant pinks, blues and yellows; the only shades to seen in this summer.
In destinations such as Capri, Porto Cervo, Saint Tropez, Cannes, Mykonos and Miami, the collection’s bags and beach accessories can be personalised with the name of the city they purchased in. While this exclusive opportunity might be a distant dream, we can still browse through the capsule in the region at The Dubai Mall boutique, and wear the escape-inspired pieces while fantasising over summer’s spent fondly in Mykonos.
