Paris AW17: Valentino Romance

IMG_4379Really wishing I could have experienced those beautiful collections in real. I always find myself dreaming of sitting at a fashion show – preferably Valentino! Well, I guess watching them from my laptop with some snacks will do for now.

Valentino – the epitome of grace. I loved this collection and I’m thoroughly appreciating Pierpaolo Piccioli’s visions of loveliness with each season. There is always something so charming about his designs that completely draw you in (always loving those heavenly pleats). The use of soft colours and fluid shapes contrasted with deep purple lips, biker boots and beaded chokers projected aΒ girly meets cool girl vibe that I loved.

The perfectly feminine colour palette has me excited to add more sweet colours into my wardrobe (and airy silhouettes) – turquoise, soft pinks, yellow, peach and signature Valentino red, divine! Piccioli’s taste for that dreamy pink and red colour combo also continues and I don’t think I’ll ever not love it. Hoping the turquoise and baby blue colour combo makes an appearance in another season, too. Very cute and totally refreshing!IMG_4381IMG_4386IMG_4373IMG_4367Will Piccioli ever produce a coat that isn’t crafted to perfection? Still not over that double-breasted fuchsia pink coat with velvet brocade detailing from the SS17 collection. If I could only have one coat for the rest of my life it would be that. There were enviable coats in this collection too, I mean, that light yellow coat with 3D floral appliquΓ© and black collared coat dotted in black sequins – yes please. Has me wishing I were taller so I could wear long overcoats without it trailing on the floor.

My favourite has to be the red delicately pleated floor length gown, with the tulle sheer enough that you can see the elegant pink lace plunged neckline layered underneath – the dress of my dreams. My second fave is, again, the pink and red chiffon and lace midi dress with fluid hemline and layered frilled sleeves. Also love the off-white long sleeved midi dress with symmetrical floral appliquΓ© – what a lovely splash of colour.IMG_4378IMG_4375IMG_4369IMG_4376IMG_4377IMG_4372IMG_4365IMG_4364IMG_4363IMG_4368IMG_4374IMG_4383Lucie xo
