"We wanted to tell a new fairy tale," Piccioli said backstage. "We're proud of the house heritage, but we wanted to give a personal point of view."
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli acted once again as the new designers for Valentino, and steered clear of the colour red. Instead they brought back the romance with light, sheer fabrics making short party dresses, shorts and some long evening dresses that make the models look like they're in water. Utterly weightless.
In a few designs they'd brought back lace and lampshade skirts, but the shoes are undoubtably going to be a hit with the ediotorial photoshoots next year, designed by Phillip Tracey.
As the layers increased, the fabric became lighter, but shapes were formed to make it have the resemblance of something breakable as well as a solid sculpture.
The above ensemble reminds me of Elie Saab's Couture style, combining solid embroidered flowers with sheer fabrics and lace. That bag looks gorgeous though, the colours compliment each other well.
Pretty bows, laser cut leather jackets, barely there sheer fabric, and soft colours of gray, lavender, gold and nude, popular colours in other collections this season as well.
