Valentino: legend continues
Refined luxury is the definition of Valentino’s Alessandra Facchinetti’s first haute couture show during the Paris Fashion Week. The house’s new creative director describes the collection as ‘couture for wearing’.
The designer said:
I am continuing here what I started with the Valentino pret-a-porter collection: once again, there is no frantic search for trend.
It’s couture without theatricality, which cares about functionality – something clothes should always have. Valentino was a master of that. But there’s nothing nostalgic in my approach.”
Alessandra is 35, and is the daughter of Roby Facchinetti, leader of the timeless Italian rock band Pooh, and sister of rapper DJ Francesco.
She worked for Gucci for two years, followed by Tom Ford, and has also designed for Moncler Gamme Rouge.
Nobody was expecting young successor Alessandra Facchinetti to make anything approaching Valentino‘s refinement. And she did it right with her first attempt at a couture collection since being appointed.
Valentino has been popular with famous, well-dressed women for more than four decades, including Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Naomi Watts, Claire Danes, Gwen Stefani, Lindsay Lohan, and Gwenyth Paltrow.
And of course, the final dress out on the catwalk was a red one – Valentino custom that proves his memory is very much alive and well in Paris.
The legend definetly continues.
