Valentino Spring 2010
“The collection Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli presented for Spring couldn’t have been more different from their reverent ready-to-wear debut of just over six months ago. Continuing down a path they started on during Couture in July, the duo is now designing with a new Valentino generation in mind—one that likes its party dresses short and isn’t afraid of sheer. “We wanted to tell a new fairy tale,” Piccioli said backstage. “We’re proud of the house heritage, but we wanted to give a personal point of view.”
This collection tells a story about a group of girls who love to go to parties but hate to style their hair. The looks are all poofy and feminine and romantic but man, the hair looks like a tribute to static electricity. We would have liked to see a little more color. It looks like they’re all heading to the same depressing party where everyone wears muted tones, doesn’t eat, and spends all their time pouting and pulling stray hairs out of their drinks.
Okay, we’re being a little bitchy. It really is a pretty collection.
