They didn't even change the hairstyle. Enough.

It was divine! The setting and the soundtrack chosen made it very ambient. Probably my favourite show of the season also.

Definitely their best collection yet for the house.

Despite there being nothing really new in terms of silhouette here, it's the mood and the dark, devilish undertones that set this one far above their previous efforts.

Paganism is always such a rich source of inspiration when done right - and this is one of the best studies on it I've seen. These girls looks straight out of a Hieronymus Bosch painting. The textures are so intensely luxurious. I love the knotty, almost grotesque appliques of lace, I love the coral and anatomical jacquards, I love the chinoiserie, the fur, the Cathotic golds...it's so heady and so erotic in that way. Because even though these girls are showing very little skin, you can imagine them peeling off the layers for some forbidden, candlelight ceremony.

I can't wait to see detail shots of these garments - they look so incredibly dense - would love to see that workmanship up close!

Some of these pieces are just awful, terrible and ugly, and then some are just gorgeous. I can't help but think there was some sort of game of thrones inspiration at the works for this one...

^That's totally what I was thinking too. Some really ornate beautiful pieces but not as good as the spring hc collection imo

This is definitely not what I was expecting from Valentino, I was expecting long floral lace gowns in soft tones but this is such a pleasant surprise.

It looks like Dolce & Gabbana. That's not a compliment.
