VALENTINO x ZANDRA RHODES

In June 2016, newly appointed director of Maison Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli, invited Zandra Rhodes to collaborate with the iconic fashion house on a collection of prints for thier S/S ‘17 collection. Inspiration for the collection was to be taken from 'The Garden of Earthly Delights' by medieval painter, Hieronymus Bosch and Zandra’s extensive archive. In Piccioil’s own words, the collection was to be “Zandra meets Bosch, meets Valentino".
