Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli; the names to remember.
Every season, Valentino has consistently presented demure dresses of the lacy and floral nature, while also filling in the fashion niche of leatherware. The duo's impeccable execution of fine details in the lace and embroidery is extremely admirable. And of course, what is Valentino without its signature red? The feminine yet matronly silhouettes of the red pieces were striking despite their simplicity.
Cap-sleeved, floor grazing, and elegant gowns that perfectly balance sheer and solid never get thumbed down in my book.
