PFW: Valentino's Magic


It is a reality where geometry meets fairy tale and creates one of a kind magic, magic of Valentino which can't be resisted. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli though of their very own version of Italian Opera in which Harlequin wears inspired by the 60-ies A-line mini dresses, a Little Red Ridinghood has traded her red cape for a black Gothic leather one, and exotic birds flit from one dress to another.

Staying true to the Valentino's house core idea the designers' duo explored a different side of femininity: bold, daring, and even provocative. Silk, leather and lace of dark hues dominate in the collection. While along with the evening gowns and playful mini's the designers surprise us with the retro midi's from the flowy chiffon ones to the colour-blocked leather ones.
The curtains are down, the models left the "scene", the music died yet our eyes are lightened with beauty and smiles like the fantastic birds just seen on the dresses flit on our lips - this is the magic of Valentino.  

Это реальность, в которой геометрия соприкасается со сказкой, превращаяясь в волшебство, волшебство присущее только Valentino, волшебство, перед которым невозможно устоять. Maria Grazia Chiuri и Pierpaolo Piccioli придумали собственную версию итальянской оперы, где Арлекино носит вдохновленные 60-ми годами мини-трапеции, где Красная Шапочка променяла свою лёгкую накидку на чёрный готический плащ, где птицы невиданной красоты порхают с платья на платье.

Оставаясь верными традициям дома Valentino дизайнерское дуо отправилось изучать другую сторону женственности: откровенность, смелость, провокационность. Шёлк, кожа и кружево тёмных оттенков преобладают в коллекции. Наряду с длинными в пол вечерними платьями и игривыми мини появились ретро миди-юбки из струящегося шифона, полу-прозрачного шёлка и разноцветной кожи.
Занавес опустился, модели покинули "сцену", музыка утихла, а наши глаза до сих пор горят ярким блеском, и на губах порхает улыбка, такая же легкая и прекрасная, как птицы на только что увиденных платьях, - это и есть волшебство Valentino.

  3. Oh Alex, I am always looking forward to your fashion-sneak-peeks, because you have the most amaizng taste and always pick the most wonderful of pieces, and find the best shows to review!! :)
    These second dress of the first "triad" is particularly cute! I love it... ;)
    It looks also (slightly) Russian, is that possible? (Excuse me if I'm awfully wrong in this). I always find a lot of geometrics (even though a little more playful than these "straight" and "harsh" 60s geometrics) in traditional Russian art, too.

    Looking forward to you next post!
    Lots of love
    Nin

  4. It is a pure magic indeed. Have been surprised by the the patterns and the fabrics of this collection, is like they re-innovated the house, but still keeping the line faithful to the main mood of the brand. Im obsessed with the capes and the birds gowns, to die for and ultra feminine. Kisses Alexandra! xo
