Pierpaolo Piccioli delves into Valentino’s storied archives to inform the blue print of this white dress, drawing from a look in the house’s 1968 couture collection, which was based on the traditional florals of Delft ceramics. Crafted in Italy from lightweight silk twill, it’s accented with a scarf at the high neckline and is given fullness by fluttering knife pleats at the skirt. Fasten the cuffs to highlight the voluminous sleeve silhouette.
