  • Beautiful Fall- Valentino Fall 2012 Menswear

    It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the direction Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have taken Valentino since taking the helm of the storied house a few years ago and their latest outing for Fall 2012 men’s wear was another remarkable achievement of masterful tailoring updated with a subtle sense of subversion.

    While the base of the collection was a dashing yet familiar classic suit, collared shirt and tie, jackets and outerwear were updated in sculpted cocoon shapes and color-blocking and featured dropped shoulders, contrasting fabrications and collar tabs that allowed for coats to be worn elegantly over the shoulders. This lent the collection a thoroughly modern appeal that was original, while a moody color palette kept it entirely wearable.

    >>More from Valentino

    The conciseness, the strict palette and justifiable tweaks to traditional tailoring marked this outing as a head-turning winner and has surprisingly made Valentino one of our current favorites out there. Chic, sleek and new, it also makes for a perfect mate for the Valentino woman. -Naveed Hussain
