    It's just too identical to last F/W.

    What's worse is that it's boring in comparison...

    I feel disappointed. The latest couture collection was glorious and this offering feels more suitable for Red Valentino. The looks are not that bad, they're just not exciting. It's just a bunch of commercial stuff for young people. But do young people really want to dress like this?

    He trying to create F/W 2015 on his own but it's just paler in comparison. Cut all the filler looks, and the collection can be stronger.

    it was a little repetitive but good. or at least I liked it and also appreciated the whole mood, dark and gloomy.

    his last HC failed to impress me so in all fairness I was expecting worse.

    I will ask again: where are the models??? damn you Covid... I miss to bits a runway where we would see an array of familiar faces strutting down the catwalk...

    The BIG words in the beginning kill it.
    After reading I'm just not into it, period.

    Put all the big talk into great fashion.

    Not terrible, not amazing. If you saw it you wouldn't know it's Valentino...but at least it looks more expensive than his last RTW. He could dial up the fantasy aspect by a factor of ten or at least mantain some of his couture ideas.

    Not a fan of these kinds of presentations. Too depressing (-though I guess that's the point...) live musician and a parade of 50+ looks. Might as well watch those old Bailey Burberry shows.

    I agree with everyone else - Valentino RTW really has lost its identity. While the collection itself is not bad, it's also not groundbreaking in any way. The little capes are pretty cute but we've seen this before. The menswear needs help! Even KVA's Berluti is more exciting.

    Needs a bit more fantasy and glamour.

    I miss that Valentino woman. This is a girl wearing Zara.

    If you just do clothes, at least give us some attitude (like Tom Ford).
    It was a nice trunk show of beautiful, sellable and forgettable clothes.
    For some reason, I miss seeing the Valentino red!

    Déjà vú! Feels as if he got remnants from previous collections from the storage, and then he tried to pass them as a new collection.

    You’d think with all this time they have during the pandemic the collections would be full of creativity but design wise this looks quite lazy with different iterations of the same lousy ideas.

    Not bad, but very bland. I had high hopes after the S/S couture, which was one of Pierpaolo's best collections in a long time. I always think his Valentino does sort of lack a sort of undercurrent of the (bourgeois) sex appeal that I always associated with classic Valentino by Garavani. His work was never frumpy.

    Did LVMH secretly buy Valentino? It's very corporate without an ounce of soul or romance. The "gowns" at the end look like Mortica Adams went crazy and wrapped herself in her curtains. This is Maison Valentino Garavani. A brand of this caliber should not have to resort to showcasing pieces suited for a juniors line. If any brand should be flexing their creative muscles it should be this one. If Haute Couture wasn't such a success, he would have never survived on his RTW alone.
