{Fall 16 Couture} Valentino

With Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri as the dynamic duo at the helm of the Valentino fashion house, the runway shows have always been a bit magical. Not so much because of lavish settings or props, but because of the high culture for the inspirations of their collections. You are immersed in the society that Piccioli and Chiuri have either dreamed up, or are emulating through their designs, and with their strict and exacting detail coupled with their romantic aesthetic, the result is intoxicating.

This year, the Fall 2016 Couture collection celebrates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death through Elizabethan period inspiration. There were puffed sleeves, lace up vests, high white ruffs, cleric’s robes, cinched bodices, doublets, brocades, and lattice work.

They artfully managed to make the silhouettes long and lean while still toying with volume via peasant tops over skinny pants and riding boots as well as fit and flare gowns – many in off-the-shoulder or high necklines.

Stunning as usual. So sad to see such a phenomenal era in Valentino come to a close as Chiuri and Piccioli prepare to split.
