    Valentino ~ a dreamy fairy-tale show full of beautiful concoctions in light fabrics and soft pastels colour

    shown in the 19th century mansion once occupied by the Rothschilds.

    Gauzy Chantilly lace the colour of milk or clotted cream was sprinkled with silver beading, washed-out flowers prints were veiled under a layer of tulle, toile de jouys were whooshed up into frothy ballgowns. In keeping with the fairytale, the shoes were charming lace slippers.
