2016-17 Fall/Winter Collection

When it comes to Valentino, really, it’s all about the dress parade – post the day and outerwear – obligatory, as it’s ready-to-wear after all. But it’s lovely too – and this season revolved around Ballets Russes references for high necks and tutu styles, opera coats and beautiful bags.

The way to wear these is neatly across the body and tucked under the arm. But, of course, if you’re shopping from Valentino, you’re really in the market for a dress – they encapsulate any princess ambitions you may have had a child.
