PFW: Valentino Spring/Summer 2011

Valentino’s Spring 2011 offered feminine structure with ruffles, elegant hemlines and sheath overlays. With the subtle nude, navy, cream and pink hues, Valentino’s own Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Picciolli developed a truly gracious, romanticism detail. Accented embroidery, layered taffetas and all over lace added a prevalent look into the woman, truly embracing the figure.

The models displayed an arrangement of dreamy short dresses, hitting right above the knee, with a belted waist and accented collars, enveloped in bows and ruffles. The look was sheer elegance with delicate clutches and ankle strap heels to make the style complete. 

The high neckline created a sense of sophistication, bringing fashion back to the earlier years of what a woman should look like. The longer dresses cascaded down to the runway, after tiers of layered mesh. The blouse-like tops complimented the skirts allowing for a picturesque finish. The long dresses that eliminated the ruffles, had another side to show. This look was sleek, slim and translucent with a satin lining and a light sheer cover.

The simplicity of these garments caused for commotion, which allowed these looks to feel rich and timeless. The colors were mainly neutral, except for an explosion of red. One that caught the eye was the long dress with a tall frontal slit, and lining that swayed with each step. A soft shoulder, ruffle front and small bow collar made this elegant dress to come together. The only flesh that was seen on display were the legs that crept from underneath the dresses, and the occasional forearm. The style was not necessarily to feel completely concealed, but instead to grace us with a ladylike fashion.

Valentino, himself looked to be impressed with the tendency that was brought together, not that it was a surprise. The charming detail and soft elegance truly made a grand entrance and brought attention to each and every look that came out. A truly modern take on femininity and the woman’s form.
