Valentino Haute Couture Spring 2010

by Christine Suppes

The two young designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccini showed a collection they called Virtual Eden. This anything but classical Valentino theme brought out sleepwalkers, often blindfolded, in chiffon and billowing pastel confections of summer froth, from tight pleated trousers to goddess tunics for romping in the summer sunlight or moonshine. Yes, there was the red tribute to Mr. Valentino which seemed so out of place as to be annoying. This was a collection about softness, floating and dreaming. Take away the red when it does not apply, please.
