    clever strategy. you do archive reissues for a couple of seasons then you start throwing nonsense to the catwalk.
    so do they expect to be praised for not literally following valentino's path or what? :ninja:

    the shoes are beyond. no platforms! but again that's just Philip Treacy


    team alessandra indeed!

    Um yeah cause they are sycophants and part of "the family".

    I bet if one of them has kids Val or Giammetti are the godfathers.

    Most of the pieces are overly ruffled...if I can say so.

    But I love that nudey top on Constance, the dress with the beehive kind of texture print and the longer white-lace like dress

    This is a good, pretty and very vacuous collection. Its a diffusion of the Fall Haute Couture and I like it for that.

    However, what Alessandra was doing was using the Valentino aesthetic to design modern clothing. What these designers are doing is decorating clothing and using embellishments to distract from the cut and drape of the clothing.

    And is it just me, or is this the first Pret-a-Porter Valentino collection without a red dress in the finale? :unsure:

    Not really into it, some of it is a wee bit sloppy looking.
    I do like the chilly colors though it keeps it from looking like a SS collection.

    I know it is very painful to lose someone you love, but it's time to let go of what happened to Alessandra.

    Yes, she's a better designer than these two dolts. But it's not their fault she was fired. It's Valentino and the business side of the company. Quite often when one designer steps down, tfsers rather pull out their teeth than give the new designers a chance. I honestly don't want the Valentino threads to turn into the Gucci (or Chloe) ones where people b*tch and moan about how they miss Tom Ford or Phoebe.

    Now as far as the collection. It's not as bad as I expected. Their first two collections for the house were horrific, however couture, and now this, aren't so bad. It is hypocritical that this design team is allowed to create looks so un-Valentino, when Alessandra wasn't. But again I don't think that's the design team's fault. Alessandra was doomed from the start. Valentino saw a talented designer who was fired from Gucci, they wanted to pull the same stunt.

    However back to the collection, it just needs a few refinements. A few dresses could have been edited out, and better tailoring could have been done to some of the outfits to make the silhouette cleaner. But it's not bad, and I must admit I like it.

    Wow, I haven't looked at Valentino with any excitement in years but this is SO gorgeous!.. the use of lace is definitely a house classic but it feels so relevant, perhaps because it's done with such honesty and charm.. I absolutely love this, definitely the best show of the last two days. :heart:

    Lol, I sense so much bitterness in this thread.

    The only thing that I truly despise here is that last look on Freja. It's something you'd expect from Zac Posen, not from Valentino. The rest of it though is pretty great.

    Oh yeah and I do wish there was at least one piece is RED.

    Just saw the whole collection and I can't say I hate it. Um yeah that's pretty much it.

    And I agree what have they got against red. We can all see that they are trying to do something different by stealing I mean following a new path or whatever but just one red dress would be nice.
