Valentino Spring 2016 Couture

Couture collections usually do nothing for me besides a little game of “who would wear which dress to what award show” but every now and then, one collection comes and you can’t resist its utterly ethereal aesthetic. Amid the “Africa themed S/S 16 collection showed by white models in African-American hair” controversy (amid because they used the same models with same hair even in the campaign shots), designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli managed to shift the focus away from that flop to an amazingly executed, very literally Roman, timelessly simple and yet youthfully modern couture collection.

Side note: hundred bucks on that snake headpieces and metal harnesses being the “thing” of this summer.
