Valentino - Hits the Fashion Radar Again

Anyone that saw the film Coco Chanel starring Shirley MacLaine knows that the great Coco gave us couture in jersey way back during World War I when resources where scarce and money was tight. So, doesn't it make sense that today Valentino would give us their version of the couture t-shirt (pictured left) considering these uncertain times? Of course, we would never expect anything minimalistic about a Valentino t-shirt, such as the perfect wash to make it special..... no, we expect frills, flowers, and lace.... in a Valentino way. Now with Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli as creative directors, we know that those elements that once were only for girly girls can also turn any fashionista into a rock star.
