I totally what are you saying. I actually down mind if the palette is repetitive but the silhouettes and shapes are very similar and it seems they have run out of idea. Though I can see slight improvement of the "new" Valentino since I'm not putting my hope on for a bright and vibrant or, at least, different, collection. Here we have beautiful dresses and gowns with demur palette and lace appliqués but if it's going to be like this for like another 5 or 6 years and younger people who are not digging Valentino archive will think this is Valentino. Yes, Valentino himself produced gorgeous softer collections but it's fun and vivacious.

They seem terrified of moving away from the Valentino "look" and experimenting, so it's the same old...nonetheless, much more refined aesthetics than the other bore, Chanel.

Beautiful pieces. Direct from the atelier to a woman body.

I have a feeling that all these dresses are from previous collections. Absolutely boring! All the same silhouettes, fabrics, colors. Ewww!

What happened ? Haute Couture FW11 is so beautiful and I thought that would be the ultimate new Valentino but now they disappoint me

"Sweet" and very wearable; not a collection I will forget about it before it hits the stores though.

Auto-pilot is the phrase to use when describing Valentino. Garavani can't honestly approve of this. I just don't understand how he hated Alessandra's designs but cosigns on this dreary bullish!t. It's madness.
