Valentino Fall 2007 Collection: "Old School" Haute Couture

If John Galliano is the master of modern haute couture then Valentino Garavani is the master of old school haute couture. The Fall 07 collections have been besieged with retro 40's glamour. I'm certainly not complaining. In fact, Valentino's collection offered the fashion elite a true representation of 40's handbag style as opposed to Dior's modern design twists. Splashes of color displayed along tried-and-true black made his bags evoke a vintage vibe without seeming dated. Classically structured frame clutches, evening, and hand bags crafted from patent leather, exotic skins, crystal beading, and delicate fabrics offered variety to satisfy a myriad of tastes. Ah, Valentino, you do a handbag lover good!
