In a gallery of pure art and aligned sculptures you would compose one collection that deserves a wall of its own. That one wall would be filled with these pieces from this collection. The essence of this collection depended on a variety of things without relying on the unusual. Here is a designer who’s known as Valentino and the wonders of the two creative directors Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri. They designed a well-constructed fall through of whimsical designs and lavish luxe details.
It’s a woven vision of the past when the 1700’s would have courted 2011 if it could. It’s an endearing showcase of streaming textured pieces and whispering sheer gowns. Over the years we’ve missed the touching lines Valentino pierced through along each runaway show. Since the 2008 roaring documentary The Last Emperor it revealed his past and present heartbreak which came with being so successful for over 45 years. Since his retirement the brand reeved up the challenge of showing the viewer’s what his vision still represents. It’s gone through some rough hemlines but proven it’s still as strong as ever.
Though this detailed collection displayed shocking gold’s, and frosty grays all while introducing to us the rocky blacks. Followed by the soft flowery prints and tapestry coats all played a part to the campy cold days ahead. The willow gowns against the sheering trend really went well considering the reclusive way this trend is. I enjoyed the velvet gowns crossed between the sheer pieces and subtle designs.
Overall it was a couture masterpiece piercing away from the bizarre and showing us how creative one thought could be. I loved the shimmering dusty like gowns and how alluring they look if I had the chance to wear one. Of course that’s a thought but you never know, but besides the red-carpet gowns. I fell for the red dresses since it’s the signature color for Valentino I thought it skipped well along the mellow tone colors.
It’s a desiring selection of what luxurious fall designs meeting with Couture should showcase. He may not be at the end of the catwalk anymore yet it doesn’t hurt to quote him. A true quote once spoken by Valentino explains it all “I look very carefully at all the detail of the human body of the woman.” This 2011 haute couture collection clearly spoke volumes in the detail department.
