Not about the Zoolander please. It is about all the extraordinary detailing and total effect by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli – the dream team at Valentino.
NuYou Malaysia magazine recently did a monochrome fashion party – perhaps not entirely influenced by this FW15, but nonetheless it pays tribute to the greatness and infinite beauty of monochrome. Of course there are more – the dreamy and romantic gowns that the pair is known for. Ever so delicate and sensual, every turn is a magic. Tribal infused dresses came in midway – working along with lace and embroidery, it was as elaborate as we can ask for. I can imagine fashion stylists booking every piece for the fashion spread. Hundred of styling possibilities.
Still, I championed the monochrome theme – done right in EVERY single look. (Styling gospel for me)
Finally, the accessories – cash cow of every successful fashion label. The rock-studded Valentino shoes and bags? Still hanging out season after season and bringing in lots of followers. The FW15 accessories are elegant and lasting, spotting top-handle satchels and V-tag attached to soft leather handheld. Worthy of every penny.
So instead of showing the usual full look images – I think it is far better to edit and post the details. It’s where the real thought process and workmanship sits.
Pick your pieces for all the year-end party now.
