2011 A/W Paris Fashion Week: Valentino

For Autumn/Winter 2011, designing duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccoli conjured up a romantic collection overflowing with soft and feminine looks. The two remixed iconic lace dresses and made them sheer, some designed with perfect knife-pleats, while other gowns integrated lace with a chevron detailing. For daywear, '70s-inspired trousers were paired with sheer tops and decadent coats, and chic knit tops were paired with melton wool skirts evoking a classic ladylike appeal. Meanwhile, standout leather coats, dipped in dark teal and chocolate brown, added just the right amount of contrast to the soft and pretty collection.
