Designers: Valentino

Valentino Haute Couture Spring Summer 2009

Set in the grand amphitheater of the Sorbonne University, Valentino's new design team (a partnership between Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli) debuted their new Haute Couture collection to an expecting audience. While not as fashion forward as the recently ousted Alessandra Facchinetti the designers explored the roots of the fashion house with a more traditional approach.
