Valentino Spring Summer 2011 Show Preview

Here’s the view from my seat at the spring/summer 2011 Valentino fashion show yesterday afternoon.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli did a stellar job with their oh-so-refined collection at Valentino.

Valentino Haute Couture Fall Winter 2010 Show Invitation

Here's a photo of the Valentino fall/winter 2010 haute couture show invitation I've received.

I've been told it was a front row seat (there were only 2 rows at the show). It's a shame I didn't make it to yesterday evening's show as I had to fly to Berlin in the morning.

Valentino Haute Couture Spring Summer 2010

And just like this, out with the old and in with the new. Meet the new Valentino.

Looking at these images, it's quite evident that Valentino is trying
to attract a new customer.

It's fascinating how a lot of designers
these days focus on their brand's heritage whereas Valentino's Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli are charging forward with a risky approach.

Perhaps too forward and too radical from the brand's identity?

You know who I think would be perfect to design Valentino and carry the torch in the future? Elie Saab.

What do you think?
