The Fall 2018 collection by Red Valentino boasts sophisticated clothing designs inspired by the Cold War time period. Appropriating the smart fashion silhouettes of the 50s and 60s, Pierpaolo Piccioli highlights beautiful navy double-breasted coats and slogan graphics of era-appropriate cryptography mixed with modern texting slang—L0V3 Y06, M155 Y06, etc. The oblique messages are stamped down arm sleeves and on the back of fisherman sweaters.

Each piece in the sophisticated clothing line is "named for the craftsperson who made it," which strengthens not only the relationship between the couture fashion label and the supplier, but also the understanding of the public with regard to production processes, the industry's ethical codes and interconnected departments.
