This collection was stunning. I with the exception of the three animal printed dresses the collection was amazing. While I loved all of the peices I have to say the most stunning peices was the black and white hand painted coat that Sasha P. had on and the white chiffon gown that Tanya D. wore. Giambattista did a great job.

This collection is so breathtaking and lady-like. I agree that it does feel Valentino. The glamor lost in the house of Valentino has been found by Giambasttista Valli. He married elegance with drama so effortlessly.

I feel like indeed this is what Valentino used to be and it was very much Giambattista Valli but I think he needed an extra editing eye to sort of nix some of these numbers. I mean there was even what looked to be like a little Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen in there... IDK, I think it was a commendable entry to become a full fledged member of La Chambre Syndicale but I think that if he were to go into the LVMH group and there was that stern hand that they have, sort of guiding the collection, it could be good for him...

or let Anna in there with her editing eye.

I hope this is going to be wonderful. Coat at first post is so gorgeous I would love to have it in my life. This is actually the first HC collection from this season that I am excited about, for now.

This collection truly needed better editing, it started so beautifully, all those short dresses are stunning, so why end on such a heavy note? And its not like any of those gowns are impressive, they look dated, and unnecessary. I hope he gets better with time, even the presentation could have been more majestic!

I'm so excited for Valli. It's inspiring to hear he's done this on his own without backers. He's gonna have to play a little safe early in but I'm excited to see where he takes this. Bravo Giambattista i wish you the best!

Edit edit edit GV! Very old-school Valentino, Rome in the 50ies, glamour and romance. Red dress anyone? Love it most of it. Some pieces feel tired though but true couture. He's really putting a mark down for the bigger houses to notice.

What a great start to couture week. That first coat is divine - so much texture and as others said, very delicate and clean at the same time. There was a risk with some much intricate detail and materials the coat could have been lost but it looks pristine.

And I love the dress Charlotte wore the wedding - I thought the cape was stunning and so glad to see it's Valli.

I see now all collection and loved, but many looks-like Chanel HC S/S 2009!
