Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by a number of male muses this season, names from Spanish painter Picasso to French poet Cocteau. For Valentino this season, it was all about bringing couture to menswear. Couture in the forms of the materials used, style of which the clothes were cut, and patterns printed across jackets and tops. Couture is about uniqueness and individualism, clearly stated by the one-of-a-kind clothes in this collection. Note the intricate explosion of butterflies on suits and jackets, or the boyish charm of wool, used as finely as silk on look #3.

This is among my favourites from all the collections I've reviewed. I really like #2, 3 and 6, it's charming. The clothes are styled so effortlessly, yet maintain an element of grace and precision. This is what sets high-fashion from high-street, can you imagine these in River Island or Burton? There's certainly masculinity here, but a soft one and that is what makes this collection, beautiful.

What did you think of this collection?
