Valentino Couture

Hmmm... intriguing... I am officially in love with the Valentino Couture collection shown in Paris yesterday.

I would be lying if I was to say I usually rate Valentino as a label, in fact to be blunt it tends to bore me. As for the Couture collections I definitely consider them to fall in the art category rather than appreciating them as genuine fashion. So to find myself mildly obsessed by Valentino's offering was rather unexpected. But something about the subtle, unique, slinky aesthetic of this collection has really caught my attention. I think the colours used are as close to perfection as I can remember seeing and the entire handwriting of it I find modern, fresh and fantastical. Additionally it's such a breath of fresh air to see a couture collection that isn't just full of puffy, regal, over-blown frocks.

Mmmmm. Delightful. Thanks Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli...
