Closing Paris Haute Couture Week, Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli present a showing of iridescent materials, ruffles and long and loose-fitting silhouettes. A couture dream featuring feminine frocks of lace and muted hues paired with oversize collars–the magic is in the details for Valentino’s spring couture outing.
Valentino offers a ruffle filled sequel to its spring line for pre-fall 2011. Worn by Caroline Brasch Nielsen who also starred in the label’s recent spring campaign, the collection features a floor length gowns and flirty skirts for the autumn season. Along with lace work and even a touch of animal print, the Valentino woman is emboldened for pre-fall.
Valentino’s spring 2011 campaign follows along the vein of fall 2010 with black and white portraits lensed by David Sims. Starring Freja Beha Erichsen, Caroline Brasch-Nielsen and Julia Saner, the stunning advertisements showcase the label’s soft and feminine designs.

Delving into the spring, the latest outing from Valentino designers Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri still maintains the womanly frills of fall in a more subdued manner, however, with a muted palette of off white, blue and black. A mature contrast to last season’s bold shapes and scalloped edges, romanticism reigns supreme for the fashion house’s spring collection.
As with last season, the fall collection from Valentino’s Haute Couture line takes some risks with its exaggerated proportions and structural complexities. Yet whatever risks the collection may take, they are offset by a cool color palette of cream, black and a hint of that signature Valentino red. When looking at the garments, one can imagine that the range was made for a young and feminine woman with the understated hair and makeup that made the show’s “wow moments” that much more powerful.
Valentino continues in the vein of moody campaigns with its latest fall advertisements where models Freja Beha Erichsen, Monika Jagaciak and Tati Cotliar are more nude than clothed. Lensed by David Sims, the trio dons the label’s elegant wear in black and white.
