Sheer Italian Beauty at Valentino

No contributor

When one thinks of Valentino, only those things that coincide with beauty, ingenuity, femininity, and so on come to mind. Those of us tuning into Paris Fashion Week spring/summer 2015, are reminded why only the good kind of feelings burgeon from this particular design house. For their latest collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli looked to their Italian roots and its rich architectural heritage for a graceful and inspired, impressionable debut.

Centuries-old, stunning Italian interiors were ever present on dresses and long skirts with floral and intricate prints with delicate cutouts. Apron-like dresses in different lengths were beautifully trimmed in an eyelet lace of deep navy. Long coats were structural with large collars and buttons. Baggy trumpet skirts in a uniform color balanced the bareness of crop tops.

Navy eyelet lace showed up again on long flowing skirts paired with oversized pullovers. Color palettes were mostly deep earth tones of red clay, bronze, green, and black. Resembling vintage Italian style mosaics were gorgeous prints found on shirtdresses and billowy jumpsuits. Like the blue waters of Capri, brocade embellished starfish and marine life covered long-sleeve sheer gowns, delivering only the most obvious of a Valentino finale—sheer beauty.
