Paris Fashion Week: Ultra feminine allure at Valentino

6 Oct

It’s becoming impossible to have a favourite at Paris Fashion Week! It almost looks like the loveliest were saved for the last few days.

The Valentino collection was everything soft, delicate, pure, whimsical and feminine. Prevalent colours we’ve seen in most Paris collections were present, black, white, nude, blush pink and a touch of brights. But this collection was the ultra feminine take; full of pretty, graceful and very wearable pieces. It had an effortless,understated, almost natural elegance, very Parisian chic. There was a generous helping of frills, slim belts and subtle bows. I especially loved the black lace and chiffon over nude layers of tulle. And of course the long sleeved maxi dress in Valentino’s signature red colour. Gorgeous, gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Every single piece has a wanted sign slapped on.

    […] 2. Uber-femininity! Fashion loves to contradict itself (see above!). Pencil skirts, blouses, stockings, stilettos, diamonds (of course!) and a nipped-in, waspish silhouette. You may also dig the midi skirt, which hits mid-calf and will make you feel quite girly, swishing around the office in this number and is a great look if your body type is even slightly pear shaped as you will look like you have the tiniest waist in the world. Stylefest blogged about the Valentino collection, which should provide inspiration: check it here. […]
