Valentino - Fall 2012 Couture

Valentino is a house that traditionally reads red, but Chiuri and Piccioli dialed down to blue, introspection and reflection versus the extrovert essence of house habit. It made for a quietly spectacular opening in crepes, chiffons, and cshmere with a lush sobriety. That same idea of modest luxury carried over into full-length lace and chiffon floral dress, and a coat that was encrusted with cashmere appliques of flowers and leaves in a pattern that was inspired by William Morris "Tree of Life.

Today at Valentino, they introduced brocade, for instance, an oldish idea, but here zapped with yellow. Then there was the blue, of course, antithesis of all the house traditionally holds dear, even if the red did reinsert itself toward the end of the show.
