Flawlessly crafted in Italy from a signature wool and silk-blend, Valentino’s black and red cape top is a stunning interpretation of contemporary evening wear. It’s cut with a low crew neck and rounded shoulders with armhole slits. Finished the look with the cape jacket, featuring a one-button closure, channeling a tuxedo style to overlay for dramatic feminine flair and style with one of the label’s signature bags alongside pointed red heels. The vibrant patterns in Valentino’s Pre-SS17 collection mirror the lively spirit of Cuba. The midi straight skirt is printed with romantic brocato flowers – in rich shades of gold, and cut to fall from the waist in voluminous fabric. Tuck in a crisp white shirt, and top with a bomber jacket for a tougher twist, a fashion hit with all of the industry’s most influences, including, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Louise Roe, and Lily Aldridge.   Continuing the vibrant Cuban-inspired theme is the short floaty sleeve crew neck dress, designed with a softly fluted skirt that offsets the fitted waist perfectly. Keep the mariposa garden print in focus with pared-back accents. The style still remains throughout the collection with the short floaty sleeve cropped top, which is one of the best ways to tap the louche pajama trend. It’s enlivened with an eye-popping floral garden design and outlined with mariposa print. Team it with trousers for statement-making impact.
