Valentino is VA Vroom

Valentino Fall 2011 collection is amazing. His brand continues to have the pulse of understanding the silhouette of the women’s body. This season he has designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli inspiring and leading the brand. They emphasize a light and demure look that is very feminine juxtaposing lace and sheer detailing.

The look is smart and mature. This collection also features the gauzy dresses which is the signature of these designers. But for the Valentino Fall collection, they expanded the pieces to have an airy look that mixes structured separates for day, floral printed gowns with different trend python accessories. Regardless of the style, an ethereal feel ran through the entire collection. The thick fur worn by Patricia Van Der Vliet and the laser cut leather skirt on Daphne Groeneveld was breathtaking.

Chiuri and Piccioli have the ability to take materials that dense and imbue juxtaposing them to lightness. Technique illustrates the strength of their powerful design signature. It also shows these designers enormous talent.
