The Perfection Collection







the actual show happened today
VALENTINO COUTURE

perhaps the most beautiful, most wearable, opulent, exquisite,
focused collection of Couture Week.

the ensemble above is one of the reasons why.

most of you know I love all things Italian, it's just "in there" like the sauce.
I'm always drawn to the Italian designers 1st, even the designers of handbags & shoes.


without reading any reviews as it is too early for anyone to get it posted,
I believe we can look to Cleopatra and the soldiers of ancient Romef for reference.

velvets abounded, and it just goes to show that Linda Fargo at Bergdorf-Goodman
knows a thing or two about trending.
she said this last week.
the fabric of Fall is velvet.

more about that in a later post.




for the ladies who can actually buy couture 
this collection has something for everyone. 
 movie stars, rock stars, visionaries and, yes, even Kim Kardashian
will be standing in line to get fitted.
there is even the most perfect Mother-of-the-Bride outfit,
a golden confection with sleeves & a billowing skirt.

this is one of the few times I have actually lusted after an outfit.
yes, in lust with that red coat.

& another noteworthy fact,
all the models wore flat sandals, no high heels anywhere in sight.

    1. Aha! You were way ahead! The New York Times today dubbed it the "fashion show of the century"!!

      Going through Rome......and describing just what you showed us ahead of time!! "islands of people" all throughout Rome!

      Brava!!! You called it so early! As you always do!!

      Please everyone read the review in the New York Times magazine Sunday! Pretty much the best fashion show in 100 years!!! (it might not be in the magazine...just go to the New York Times and search Valentino!!!)

      You GO GIRL!!!

  5. Valentino must have been really PROUD of his people for staging that exquisite and unusual fashion show. No one has ever seen anything like it! I saw it because of YOU; before it was reviewed by anyone...

    Then the reviews came in ....BRAVA!!!!

    Brilliant!!
