Valentino Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear
Before the show, Pierpaolo and Maria stated "We went back to the idea of Italy". After the show, I know I had died and gone to Valentino heaven.
The concept behind this 70+ look show was a Grand Tour throughout Italy; it was like a beautiful tribute to the land. There were phases throughout the show. We had rich embroidery, white crochet, rainbow knits, cut leather, structured linen, layered crepe and silk, and the signature Valentino print.
The show started with a very dark look, with this beautiful embroidered, patterned navy blue apron dress. The look was dark, but it so worked for spring (in a very unconventional way). There were also a lot of simpler looks, which worked well with the most divine oversized handbags.
I also admire Valentino's deep connection to sheer. The sheer gowns always make an appearance and they always impress me because I can't classify the dress as obviously sexy, or too revealing - even though it's both. The dresses are done in the softest and most elegant way. Here they are everything promised but with an 'ocean' touch - the starfish and coral print so beautiful indeed.
I'm not even going to mention the shoes. The pictures speak for themselves (#OnMyWishlist - BIG time).
Another collection consistent with the fairytale that Valentino belives we should indulge in. Again, we see broderie, beading, lots of lace, mixing of prints, and luxurious colors. It's so regal and has such a deep story behind it. It's a story we'll know once we put on one of those dresses ourselves. xx
