One could argue that this couture season saw two major debuts, the more obvious, that of Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri. In a sense, her former partner, Pierpaolo Piccioli, had his own debut, his first solo couture collection for Valentino, since he and Chiuri ascended to the role of joint creative directors after the retirement of the house founder.

“To do couture for a designer is a great opportunity,” Piccioli said during a preview, appearing not at all frazzled on the eve of his third show in three weeks. (He’s shown men’s last week in Paris, and prior to that, pre-fall, in New York.) “For me to create couture, to have the opportunity to work with the atelier, is a dream come true.”

For spring, Piccioli staged another exquisite Valentino Dream sequence. What did surprise: The challenging nature of the collection. These were not easy clothes. Exquisite, yes, but not easy in terms of proportion. Dresses fell free-form to the floor from a high neck or off the shoulders, unfettered by demarcations of waist or hips. Often, subtle trapeze cuts, pleats and vertical ruffles added sly volume to the gentle plissés and chiffons. The overall look was surrealist, otherworldly nightgown; these beauties could have costumed Heaven in a Cocteau film, had he been a minimalist. There were day looks as well, including a round-shouldered cape and a long white coat embroidered discreetly with classical symbols of love and nature, both in sturdy, austere cashmere double-face.

  • lauriedamrose

    They are all beautiful,especially the more romantic spagehetti strap dresses.

  • the truth influence

    Very beautiful but a bit to see through for me! I like the idea of free fall fabric in that length and style but they could have found a slip to put under not to mention it is for a limited audience $$$

  • Darcy Koch

    Very pretty but not appropriate for all occasions.

  • Mel Borhi

    Like the style but would layer up abit. Not that risky.

  • Carolyn Cheek- Massey

  • lisa

    I see a couple that I’d wear. Now, if only I had somewhere to wear something this dressy.

  • Jenn Oldaker

    I agree the last one is very pretty but I am not a dressy person nor do I have the body for these lol!

  • Valerie Guerrero

    not my kind of dresses they are too much to see

  • stephanie

    These dresses probably cost as much as a used car. I’ve never seen anyone on the street dressed in anything like these.

  • Kelly O’Malley

    Very pretty dresses. I am not into the transparency, but are quite pretty. I love the cut on the 3rd dress. The V at the midline is really pretty.

    I would like to see a fashion show. The cost of one dress is probably out of my budget. But, it’d be fun to attend.

  • Tamra M Gibson

    Wow don’t they all look pretty. It amazes me how well the models can pull of any type of wear

  • slehan

    Do the models ever smile?

    I don’t need to dress up any more, but if I did I could see wearing a couple of these.

  • http://amyandfurcrew.blogspot.com/ Amy Orvin

    I always enjoy looking at the Valentino Couture spring line. I have a fascination with some of the outfits Claudia Schiffer wore back in the 90′s.

  • rosannepm

    Sorry but I hate these dresses. They are see through. I could not imagine my granddaughters wearing these and I am usually pretty trendy and fashionable. Rosanne

  • slehan

    Very minimal makeup on the models. Some look washed out.

  • lisa

    I would be more interested in clothing that real people wear. These are nice, but when I’m out and about, don’t dress this way and have never seen anyone else dressed like this.

  • April monty

    These are so chic and trendy ,the fabrics and the styles are to die for .

  • tiffany dayton

    They are ok. not something I would want my daughter to wear.

    I love the pleats and semi sheer look. Very feminine and beautiful.
