It was the beginning of a new life for the House of Valentino yesterday when Alessandra Facchinetti presented her premier collection. The collection was sophisticated, and beautiful and very Valentino but in a completely modern way. I think that Facchinetti may just be the perfect fit as the house's successor. I think I loved almost every single piece, especially the coats. I never saw myself as a Valentino girl until now. So if the intention of the House was to breed some new air and open the door to a new generation (literally) it has already proven successful.
