Last week I had the pleasure of attending Valentino’s Spring/Summer Collection presentation at the Four Seasons in Surfside. The Four Seasons looks more like an Italian Villa than a Miami Beach hotel and Valentino’s party planners have a knack for choosing the most exquisite locations for their events. The presentation was held on the terrace overlooking the beach. Beautiful models with legs to die for casually showed off Valentino’s latest frocks as the clients oohed and aahhed in delight. Each dress was better than the next, featuring an array of color, beadwork, feathers, and couture pleating. My favorite thing about these particular dresses was they looked equally amazing in heels and flats and were perfect for Miami, although they would translate anywhere. Valentino’s newest collection of handbags, including the much hyped, VRING, are really lovely and practical, especially the totes. We also got to see a one of a kind and droolworthy crocodile handbag. The presentation was fabulous and gave clients the chance to see the pieces up close and get some styling ideas. Several clients wore pieces from the new collection and it was great to see the dresses flatter real women with curves, not just the models. I’m really excited to spot these new Valentino pieces on the party circuit…so can someone please invite me to some more parties?!?
