Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011: Valentino
With Valentino himself looking on, his protégés Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Picciolli impressed by injecting the label's S/S '11 collection with some original house flavour. A beautiful mixture of ladylike dressing, a touch of '70s influence, and romantic ruffles, Valentino was said to be happy with the homage to his work. There was ample girlie-ness with chantilly lace, layers of organza, polka dot frocks, and embroidery. In a colour palette of mostly ivory and nude, things were kept interesting with flashes of Valentino-esque red and pink.
