Bonding, Capes & Banding

By Marcellous L. JONES

Paris, France – Valentino presents a perfect collection of exquisite tailoring and sensible styling for the man who can have whatever he wants.  The suits deliberately close to the body in order to show that a man is nothing unless he can be proud of his physique. Large leather bands are bonded directly onto many of the looks like the coats. The patterns and evening denim blue join forces for this collection with everything for all occasions going from the boardroom, after five drinks, leisure wear and evening wear seduction.

The collection has an incredible amount of Scottish plaids, checks, and others among their Valentino blues and blacks. The trousers are cut either just above the ankles for a more dandy look or just below the ankles. The forest green redingote in leather is made sleek with a blue and green lining plaid.

Fine knits, shaved mink, stunning beaver in black and alternative quilted look materials guarantee that other fashion houses will not likely easily match the aesthetics of this collection for this season.

The huge hit in the collection for this writer is without a doubt the huge array of capes and the banding.
