The Beautiful Valentino Haute Spring 2014 collection was, for me, one of the highlights of this year’s collections so it was interesting to see how Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli would follow it up.
And, I wasn’t disappointed though, with my hopes and expectations so high, it would be a lie to say I thought the Fall/Winter collection even better. Maybe, as good as or as good but in a different more wearable way?
Impossible not to love the – so chicly Italian – elegant lines and sheer I-want-it-now-luxe of the style as well as yet more exquisite fabrics. Makes me want to see more of what these designers can do … now … not wait another six months for Spring 2015.
Whilst my favourite looks are those featured here, there is much else to admire if you sashay across to the Valentino Runway collection on Fashionising. Do take a look and enjoy.
