Valentino spring 2021

 Once upon a time the brand and the designer had this flawless reputation with a look that was quickly and easily associated to them both. He lived the lifestyle of his customer and alas as with most of these heritage brands, it is now in the hands of some over hyped, overrated and so-called designer who threw way all that was the very elegant, sexy and slick work of Valentino Garavani. Don’t get me wrong the original was also capable of the molto signora! 


This season after seasons of   just silly over blown clothes whatever his name is delivers this meaningless, pedestrian,  generic wildly expensive collection (the term in the loosest sense of the word) ... there is not one discernible trademark look except the wrong ones which are the ridiculous sheer moomoos and over blown printed caftans which will be knocked off … maybe… for one tenth of the price.

There are far better-looking clothes at H&M, Zara, Uniqlo and I’m sure if you are a treasure hunter at TJ Maxx and Marshalls. He should be embarrassed to show his face after what he thinks is an appropriate collection for the season. I can’t even discuss the men’s since it is even more meaningless and absurd than the women’s.

This brand must hemorrhage money like a hemophiliac as the only things that seem to have a trademark are the pyramid studded shoes. its n wonder they want out of the Fifth Avenue store!!

 che triste stato di cose....  apparently he and his  ex design partner were quite evenly matched when it came to their collective and singular lack of talent and vision and how to preserve a brand that warranted a much longer recognizable life.
