RUNWAY: Valentino SS17What is fashion week without rumors? The biggest rumor in Paris is that Maria Grazia Chiuri is set to be come the first-ever female designer at Christian Dior. Would she go it alone, leaving Pierpaolo Piccioli to design Valentino alone? Only time will tell. However, for their SS17 collection, the vibe felt decidedly more rugged: see the frayed edges or unfnished hems that looked like something you'd find at an army-surplus store. However, this is Valentino, and there was plenty of very polished and fancy clothes, many in super lightweight fabrics, layered, to deceptively look like they're off-season clothes but aha! they are perfect for hot Roman days. The accessories, like the metal chain necklaces, bags and the sharp footwear, rounded out the expansive collection.
