In a pre-show interview, the designing force behind the House of Valentino told me white is the color of Haute Couture. Pure, unadulterated, clean, and effortlessly distinctive, the shade’s power lies in its uncorrupted connotation and lack of pretense.

I’m here in New York City for Valentino’s show tonight, and not only am I so excited to see what they have in store, I’m pretty enthused about their just-released Resort ’15 collection.
Like pastel and bright hues, butterflies may initially seem better suited to make their first fluttery appearance in the springtime. But also like pastels and brights, they are so much more uplifting as we fall into the cold, dark months of winter.
I give Valentino a lot of love because honestly, Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo aren’t doing much wrong these days. This latest confection only further solidifies my obsession. Hello, happiness! They’ve unleashed one of the most upbeat and perfectly irreverent bags you’ve ever seen, in time for the spring season.
We’ve become so accustomed to the spectacular embroidery and detailing showcased on Maria Grazia’s and Pierpaolo’s epic dresses for Valentino, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see similar work on one of their bags. But that doesn’t make taking a gander at this bag any less special…
From rock studs to rivets: Valentino is currently easing up on their trademark (to the point of ubiquity) hardware and going for a lighter look with a smattering of delicate rivets. The level of metal might be turned down a few notches, but this bag manages to still pack a punch when it comes to covetability.
Fashion Month is winding down, but some of the best shows are still to come, including my beloved Valentino.
