Valentino Spring 2010 Haute Couture
i am not a big fan of this collection. i think it lacks cohesiveness, innovation, and the color pallet is just all over the place.
this line begins with pastel colors, then trails off to edgy, goth-like pieces, then back around to lighter shades (more earth-tone than the previous, playful, pastel).
i don't think that this collection offered me anything new, in terms of garments, hair and makeup, that I have never seen before. The 4th dress, in the first row looks almost exact to a Rodarte dress from a previous season (i think Fall 2008) and the makeup resembles the makeup of many other Spring 2010 shows.
Some of these looks do tie in together, like all looks should in a collection. However, I think that if you chose 10 looks at random and presented them to another party, the other party would have no idea that all 10 looks came from the same collection. Thus, an obvious lack of cohesion.
