Elegant Dressing - The White Series Contd.

Continuing with my White Series for January, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Perpaolo Piccioli the designers for Valentino created an enchanting series of white lace dresses for Spring ready-to-wear 2015.  The collection was based on the long gone tradition of the Grand Tour, where the British Aristocracy and the very wealthy would travel to France and Italy in pursuit of improving their culture.  

The designers used the Grand Tour as their inspiration, creating a collection that was poetic, graceful and beautiful. The detail and intricate workmanship of lace was quite astonishing.  As Pierpaolo Piccioli explained to Nicole Phelps at Style.com "in this moment when everything is synthetic, digital and flat, you need something more human."  Also included are a few more looks from the Valentino Sala Bianca Haute Couture capsule white collection shown in December.  So many beautiful silhouettes...
