Haute Off the Runway: Valentino’s Spring 2008 Collection

When you go out, you should go out with a bang! Valentino’s last hurrah was the ultimate in haute Spring fashion. Valentino the trendsetter took us to the candy shop with a collection chock full of candied colors. This Spring, expect to see lots of pastel colors mixed with brights – cotton candy pinks and blues, canary yellows, varying shades of purple (the current ‘It’ color), and of course, metallics – muted gold, bronze, and colored metallics. Valentino mixed up classic suits and dresses with edgy, trendy accessories. Shoes consisted of multicolored ribboned straps alongside polka dot stilettos and metallic gold flowered heels. Handbags were primarily large satchels in solid brights and multicolored numbers that consisted of color block, patchwork and prints. The 60’s and 70’s eras are making a strong comeback in fashion this Spring.

Another trend for Spring is one that never gets old – black and white. Valentino went back to basics and created crisp black and white separates with everything from polka dots to embellished, ruffled sleeves and hems, and ultrafeminine coats and suits with this years best accessory – the wide belt. White handbags looked 3 dimensional with black trompe l’oeil trim, and a ruffled black ball bag was one of the centerpieces of the show.
