The finest craftmanship should be part of the attribute to "couture". This, especially the rose dress on vlada looks downright cheap.

Poorly constructed.

lol, first I actually thought those pictures are part of this newest collection. it looks SO similar!!

I also get some very crappy Lebanese "haute couture" Georges Chakra/Elie Saab vibe from this

now if what they wanted was someone to look at the archives and do the same things in different colours, even I Could've done it....

and it doesnt look like couture.

Now we can really realise the impact of Alessandra. This collection is decades step back with two left feet in the direction of old Valentino. It looks cheap, uninspired, and done-before. Valentino is very proud I am sure.

are there any new designs in this? they look like outright copies!

its a shame to end couture week with this, since all the other collections were so strong.

but I am sure it will sell well because it looks exactly like everything Valentino himself did.

I'm simply piddling myself it's so beautiful. Really, I'm dying a little bit it's so good.


Thank god two accessories designers came along to make things right and show the world how couture is really done...with a leathery tanned hand holding the puppet strings.

I hope someone, anyone really, rips into it...if not the clothes then at least the ridiculous situation. Cathy Horyn, do me proud!

I'm not so sure if it will still sell. It's similar to garavani's work, but worse. I can't picture those shown on editorials yet. Just can't.

I agree, this collection is very Garavani, but I still like most of it.

exactly. i mean.... i've always loved valentino's work. not the most original among the designers... but still beautifully designed and crafted. classy and perfect.

this looks like a cheap knockoff of garavani's work

and i repeat, hate the setting
