When creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli staged his Valentino Act Collection at Milan’s Piccolo Teatro, he dubbed it “a sort of a punk act.” Indeed, reopening the iconic theater temporarily for a show after it was closed to the public due to the pandemic was a bold move, and the collection certainly called for one.

For the Italian fashion house’s FW21 line, the designer set aside his usual fluorescent color palette to embrace black and white with only hints of color, and brutally shortened silhouettes as if slashed with scissors.

To embody this spirit of the collection, Vogue Arabia and Valentino enlisted Salma Abu Deif, who is known for her remarkable style and passion for acting. The Egyptian actor was filmed in key looks from the Valentino Act Collection at the Cinema Radio, Cairo’s very own historic theater not unlike the Piccolo Teatro di Milano.
