Beautiful and very romantic collection.

A nod to old Valentino and it also feels a bit futurist in some of the silhouettes and the structure of the clothes. I think this collection has really aged well too.

Sad that politics got in the way

I was thinking the same thing as I revisited this thread with the video bump. It's aged wonderfully. Everything still looks very fresh.

I was obviously a big fan of this collection judging by my comments here almost 10 years ago at this point! Haha! Time flies in fashion, doesn't it?! Which is all the more a testament to how well designed and well executed this collection was. So many ideas, so many innovative and creative ways to update traditional couture embellishments and flourishes. Also - the mood was so right and so fresh for Valentino...a kind of cleaned up, slightly more "high fashion," less red carpet vision of the house. This collection really struck a great balance of femininity and beauty without ever veering into a saccharine, super young territory.

In fact, maybe what I liked so much about Pierpaolo's Spring/Summer 2017 solo couture collection was that is almost seemed to hark back to this collection. That same super distilled, rarified and elevated, crystal clear Valentino. Grown up, not girly.
