Valentino's Mythological Sorceress
One of my favourite collections from this season's fashion week runways, was the Paris Valentino show. Drawing inspiration from a mood board full of Opera muses and mythological sorceresses, the collection had a distinct ornate feel with North African and even Egyptian feel to some of the pieces. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli said pre show that this was to be ''a Fashion Opera'' and the collection wowed with dramatically crafted colours and fabrics. The genius of a rugby-striped cotton coat (Image 5 below) sitting perfectly midst a collection of grandeur, proved the sheer magic of this impecable Valentino collection.
