Valentino Falls Against Demure Day-Wear




Valentino’s legacy is based purely on these three elements: glamor, high-profile customers, and a coveted name. In fact, when Valentino’s name usually arises in conversation, it usually is associated with red carpet events such as the Academy Awards. Considerably so, Valentino lacks an in-touch stamina; it is usually caused by people who are unaware that Valentino is available for different occasions.

However, this past collection contradicted the lowly stereotype. The Valentino collection of Autumn/Winter 2011 was seemingly focused a bit more away from celebrity studded occasions. Mostly with minimalistic structure, sophisticated blouses and dresses, and even outerwear relayed the relaxed theme. However–as usual–we were granted with the signature and gorgeous Valentino evening section. Composed of mostly, sheer floor grazing gowns–a trend heightened this season–we were introduced to another money-making province. An example: who could ever resist the Sigrid Agren look? A sheer pale pink gown was embellished with blue-greens, a tainted white, and a creamy pomegranate color. It was really surreal to see. One could hardly ignore the celebrity faces moving about in the mind wondering who would rock what dress on the next red carpet event. The collection was amazingly balanced!

In brief, all will go well for Valentino’s retail Autumn season. Moreover, they’ve captured a new–ignorant–audience. (All is well if it gains another customer, right?)’s Tim Blanks says, “this collection could go a ways to making fans of women who don’t have a red carpet to walk every night of the week.” The statement is so true, whereas one pink fur coat found gracing the runway will make a true fan out of anyone.

Stars: 4/5
