Paris Menswear AW13: Valentino

Valentino’s collection was neat in every sense.

With London and Milan referenced, this could have easily fallen into ‘Savile Row with Italian flair’ cliche. But this was a far more progressive take on bespoke tailoring as dogtooth and checks of varying dimensions and finishes adorned sharp grey suits and matching overcoats that were saved from the ordinary by a deep black synthetic coating. The smart precision gave way to superb leather jackets, textured knits and tone-on-tone evening attire that was all very, well, neat.

In short Like Kim Jones at Vuitton, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were at the height of their powers, presenting an extraordinary show that deserves to be a commercial hit.
