Delicacy, nature, architecture and timeless, effortless beauty. Those words describe one of the most sumptuous displays seen this season – courtesy of Valentino. Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, surpassed even themselves perfecting the delicate Valentino silhouette by subtly softening it and exposing more of the neck. Inspired by wrought-iron gates and secret labyrinths of formal gardens, the duo stuck true to the brand’s identity with show-stopping artisanal dresses adorned with hand painted organza, luxe embroidery, hand-rolled crepe piping, stamped wool, and intricate crystal beading. Dramatic and romantic perfection.
