The Valentino Couture show may have been held in Paris on Wednesday, but the vibe was decidedly Greek.
We never expect anything less than a gorgeous collection from the house's designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, but the offering for fall 2014 was positively ethereal. From toga-like draped dresses to Grecian lace-up flat sandals and patterns reminiscent of ancient mosaics, the latest from the label is as appropriate for a red carpet outing as it is for a laid-back evening on the beach in Mykonos.
A bit of opulence came through at the end in the form of long-sleeved, floor-length dresses in metallic shades and sheer gowns with heavy embroidery -- classic Valentino -- which we're sure we'll be seeing on an A-list celebrity in no time.
