Valentino Takes on Tweed, Prints at Couture

After several seasons dedicated to Victorian-inspired elegance, Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli moved onto something a tad more adventurous–whilst remaining true to their taste for 19th century beauty ideals.

Tweed ensembles dominated a large part of the show: fluid skirts were paired with boxy tops or straight-cut frock coats; dresses were worn with cape-like embellishments–seemingly echoing their British fondness apparent in the men’s collections.

These was contrasted by plenty of brocade, moiré and experiments on lace, alongside rich velvets and all-silk ensembles. Those added a new level of sensuality to the collection as a nudge–conscious or not–at their Italian heritage perhaps.

Nevertheless, this season’s Valentino woman is on the go, as many of their typical, gorgeous embroided numbers came mid-calf rather than entirely floor-sweeping. Midway between idealized yesteryears and modernity, the show rang true yet thrilling.
