For their new Valentino collection we heard Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli wanted to tell a new fairy tale. And so they did. They presented a gorgeous feminine collection. The show kicked off with strapless partydresses which were elegant and playful at the same time. Huge bows were placed on these dresses. The designs came in light shades of grey, gold and lavender. They were made of light materials like organza, tulle and chiffon. If you want to go out in these designs you’d have to act very careful not to tear anything. You also must not be afraid to show some body parts: even the pants were transparent. Some chic evening gowns had ruffles and prints of honeycomb mixed with flowers. Big silver bracelets and shoes with feathers and laces at the back were worn with them. This collection proved that Chiuri and Picciolo are able to do what it has always been about for Valentino: making women feel beautiful. (Tess van Daelen)
