Understated beauty and streamlined silhouettes

Valentino Couture Fall Winter 2012/2012 was Sooo beautiful, so elegant but never too girly, it ticks the boxes for all of our fashion desires.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, the co-creative directors who have been helming the legendary label since 2008 following Mr Valentino’s retirement, are doing a wonderful job at the house – creating collections that are calm and understated, beautiful and rich. And that’s exactly what they did again today for their autumn/winter 2012-13 couture collection.

They took items – such as jumpsuits and capes – that could have been challenging in the context of couture and managed to make them look beautiful: see the stunning hand-painted Scarlett O’Hara-style dress, cinched at the waist, that was accompanied by a cascading floor-length cape in a ravishing print of birds and trees; or the pink jumpsuit with a slash-neck and a bronze antique finish.

Silhouettes were lean even when skirts splayed out. It was the definition of the waist in every outfit that did it. Everything was considered.
