He may of retired , but this collection still screams Valentino


Valentinos new head designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccio have come under a lot of pressure since Valentino retired in 2008, for not maintaining the look and very Italian feel to the company. However this year the elegance, shape and colour palette all make for a fabulous, and very Valentino, collection . As well as having all the features of a classic Valentino show the collection had a bit of a younger feel I think this was due to the shorter hem lines and shiny smooth dresses. Also the lace and small details fitted with the current trend of modern romantics .
All in all it was a very girly, feminine collection there were bows, lots of layers and voluminous ruffles in very thin luxurious fabrics as well as re-invented little black dresses to create a very svelte womanly silhouette.
