Paris: Building on the romantic femininity echoed by so many designers this spring, Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri’s collection managed to maintain the girlish glamour, without an ounce of stuffiness. Inspired by bohemian female artists from history including Deborah Turbeville and Georgia O’Keeffe, a serene folkloric thread ran through the clothes, from exaggerated lace motifs to heavy floral embroidery. A soft, romantic palette of neutrals with some pops of signature Valentino red made for a soft yet strong statement. —Shannon Davenport
