Valentino Haute Couture Fall 2016-2017


Valentino...
Yes it was necessary for that to have it's own line, Valentino is the designer brand that I would love to own something of. It's just so timeless & classic, I mean some brands are only current for a certain period of time but Valentino is going to be around for years to come. Personally I think if you're going to invest into something designer then it needs to be a one off, time, classic because then it will always be wearable. 


"Valentino haute couture Fall 2016 collection was Elizabethan themed, a conveniently fitting, considering that so many plays were set in a fantasy Renaissance Italy—Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice.

The cast of characters walking the runway were princelings, princesses, and priests, all high white ruffs, doublets, bodices, puffed sleeves, and clerical robes—inspiration richly available to two designers, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, who live in Rome and are surrounded by the portraiture, architecture, and high Catholicism of the Renaissance. It’s a culture these two live and breathe every day, as do the all-important Roman men and women who work in the Valentino couture ateliers. 
All of them together—as a fashion house on fire—have created an influential and poetic fashion phenomenon over the past few years."


This Valentino collection is so stunning it's actually unreal!
This dress above is all of my fashion dreams rolled into one, it's just so beautiful. I love the floor length gown, paired with the ruffled neck & sheer, glittery overlay. There is nothing I do not like about this look. I personally don't think I would be able to pull it off as well as the model can but a girl can always dream...


Elizabethan inspired clothes aren't something that I ever thought I'd be attracted to. 
I think it's the simplicity of the collection that I'm really in love with, black & white as you know by now are some of my favourite colour combinations, I just think these colours can never make an outfit look bad. 


Sheer fabrics are massively on trend right now. 
Sheer is always a fabric I have loved, purely because I think it's showing off your body but at the same time you feel covered up by that simple layer of sheer that hides any of your body's sins. 
In my wardrobe I don't own too much sheer but I do have a couple of sheer tops that I love to wear on nights outs because they're so effortless but never fail to make me feel glamorous. 


Besides black & white, red is a beautiful colour, red is actually a colour I love to wear, there is nothing better than an off the shoulder red top & a red lipstick!
Equally I think red works well with black and white individually. But as a trio, well what a striking combination that really makes a statement.
After all if you can't make a fashion statement on the catwalk then where can you?


I don't know if I'd invest into this collection, but I love the minimalistic elements to it.
As I said at the beginning it's very timeless and classic, fashion consists of fads and classics amongst other elements, fads come & go but classics well they'll out live us all. 

What do you think of Valentino's collection?
