Valentino Master of Couture Exhibition – Continue Reading BelowPhoto: Peter Macdiarmid for Getty imagesValentino Garavani certainly knows how to play to a crowd. “I love England Canada Goose parka sale , I love to be in London,” the designer announced to journalists gathered for the press preview of his “Valentino: Master of Couture” exhibition at London’s Somerset House, where 137 haute couture looks from his 50-year career are on view. As it turns out, however, no buttering up was needed. On display from November 29 through March 3, the clothes themselves did all the charming. A camouflage-print, chiffon-and-silk gown circa Fall 1994, a black velvet gown worn by Julia Roberts when she won her Best Actress Oscar in 2001, and a Spring 1954 strapless red tulle number covered in rose corsages were among the countless standouts.Arranged in a catwalk formation around chairs bearing place cards for fashion icons old and new (Babe Paley, Audrey Hepburn, Veruschka, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman), mannequins—all blonde and all tinted a different color according to which decade the design made its debut—are displayed thematically. Find animal prints in one cluster, candy pinks and oranges in another, and so on. Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, this arrangement hammers home a strong point: With a flower-detailed cream evening ensemble worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1968 presented next to an eerily similar Spring 2008 cream Mikado silk tunic with a flower-detail tulle skirt, it becomes nearly impossible to guess what’s vintage and what’s not. “Today, I look at those clothes, and they look as if I finished them last season,” Garavani told to “They look like today.” Having designed for the likes of Princess Grace and Jacqueline Kennedy—the latter of whom he met in 1964 at the Waldorf-Astoria after her husband’s death—Garavani concedes that, while his style may not have changed too dramatically over his 50-year career, the way people dress has. – Continue Reading Below”People work, people with lots of money…[they] do lots of charity engagements, they move,” he says. “So they cannot be dressed like in the ’60s. Ladies used to change four times a day. Now it’s different.”Though he’s officially retired, Garavani’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship couldn’t be clearer with the exhibition’s Atelier section showcasing couture techniques like nervature and rose di volant. Needless to say, it seems unlikely that an H&M collaboration will be in the works anytime soon, though his namesake label did team up with Gap in 2010 under the direction of Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri. “I am not comfortable to do cheap-chic clothes,” the 80-year-old says. “I admire other people that are able to do [it], but they copy the big designers, and they do a good job. I mean , thank God. Zara, all those people do a fantastic thing. But there are dresses that [after] you wear five times, you have to put [them] out.” And what of that British leader of high-street fashion, Kate Middleton? “She’s the talk of town because she’s so beautiful and so elegant,” he says. “What I admire about the Duchess of Cambridge is she’s always elegant but a little low-profile. She doesn’t want to appear splashing all the time, but people appreciate very much this sort of, how we say, sotto tone. I hope one day to bring one dress to her so she can wear Valentino.”Valentino: Master of Couture runs from November 29 through March 3 at the Somerset House (Embankment Galleries, Strand, London, WC2R 1LA; Master of Couture Exhibition – Continue Reading Below – Continue Reading BelowPhoto: Peter Macdiarmid for Getty imagesValentino Master of Couture ExhibitionPhoto: Peter Macdiarmid for Getty imagesValentino Master of Couture ExhibitionPhoto: Peter Macdiarmid for Getty images
