Although the master is no longer the creative input at Valentino he would be proud of what the brand is creating …….The F/W 2012-13 Collection designed by Maria Chiuri & Pierpaolo Piccioli showed at Espace Ephemere Tuileries , Paris Fashion week 6.3.12…. Meticulously designed capes, leather plastrons on jacqurd coats, flowing jumpsuits, pea coats worn with pant skirts, tone-on-tone trim runs along tunics, tapered menswear trousers, blouses & evening dresses with patchwork patterns & embroidery & decorative designs…. All combining to create a sleek ,distinctive, elegant & graceful look ….. Valentino the brand is in safe hands.
