At the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, someone looked at the past for the upcoming season. Valeriya speaks in the "Futur Antérieur" tense.

A noble link between past and present to draw the line for the future. Valeriya presented her "Futur Antérieur", Autumn/Winter 23/24 haute couture collection.

Without looking to the past, there is no future.

About Futur Antérieur A/W 2023/24: The Concept

By rediscovering the costumes of the great royal courts, in an idealised past, Valeriya reinvents couture in a modernity that seeks to link the timeless beauty of her history to a future that she hopes will be harmonious: beauty alone can save humanity.

About The Collection: Sartorial Touches

Valeriya gives her creations the period shapes, brought up to date while symbolising a link – the famous ankle attachment, signature of the collection – with the past. All asymmetries draw this balance between past and present. The materials are 100% natural, wool, cotton, and silk. Valeriya invented a new weaving technique, deposited and protected. No piece is lined, and the zips are made especially for the House and close upside down, with the House logo, a crown of course... She also decided never to pierce the weaving. As a result, all buttons are old bronze snap buttons. A last reminder to her "Futur antérieur"...
