Patricia van der Vliet & Maud Welzen for Valentino in Paris. Valentino knows how to dress women. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli showed in this show that they know that, all different then the legendary Garavani. They favor a light and almost demure look that skews girly with touches of lace and sheer detailing, but never looks immature. This season featured the gauzy dresses the duo have become known for, but expanded the airy look to include structured separates for day, floral printed gowns and python accessories. No matter the look, an ethereal feel ran through the entire showing; even the thick fur worn by Patricia. When designers can take materials that dense and imbue them with lightness it shows not only talent, but the power of a compelling design signature.
