This is Valentino!!! It’s as if a young girl from Lombardy grew up and moved to Paris, and if we opened her wardrobe, this is what we would find. It is enticing, it is luring, it is provocative, it is Italian fashion with an Haute flare! It is Valentino’s biography in fashion! Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccoli know what they are doing, we expect, and they deliver, Paris will sizzle in March when they reveal their full collection. Chiffon, leather, lace, fur coats, ruched trenches, Valentino rose embellished cardigans, this is what winter is about, there is a reason why Valentino still manages to own its prestige.
