Mood board: Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli took a thumping, tribal take on spring, sending out their signature gorgeous goddess dresses trimmed in new grass sleeves, intricate beading and horse-hair collars. The look was tinged with ethnic ornamentation, such as tiny strips of sheer tulle with metallic studs, yet were still as feminine and sophisticated as ever.
Finishing touches: With their hair pulled into gangster braided Rasta buns, the models had a fierce look about them that only deepened with cool bone necklaces, flattened clutch bags with wood and stone embroidery and block heeled sandals with criss-cross straps.
Best in show: There were so many spectacular moments in this show – from the moody tie-dyes on canvas anoraks and wide-leg trousers, to an amazing princess gown, unexpectedly crafted from brown plisse leather with a horse hair collar. A brilliant shawl cape and matching skirt, covered in tiny gold studs, exploded into a brilliant tribal pattern, while suede panelled skirts looked like doorways of pink, green and red borders.
