The look Delicate chiffon, ruffles and bows made for a highly feminine collection from Valentino. A single coral dress stood out in an otherwise black and cream collection.
Key pieces Sheer chiffon dresses and blouses had a floaty quality with ruffled-hem sleeves. Necklines were high and fastened with pussybows. Tiered ruffles were layered on dresses and blouses, while sleeves were tapered at the wrist to create a dainty puff sleeve.
Commercial appeal Lace detail, ruffles and sheer fabrics were all in synergy with spring 11 trends. Black lace and sheer dresses caught the eye.
Footwear and accessories Pointed suede shoes - some flat, others with a slight heel - had delicate ankle strapping. Small leather evening bags were draped over the shoulder.
