Haute Clothes for Every Occasion: Tim Blanks Throws Back to Valentino Spring 2001 Couture

-------

In today’s Throwback Thursday video, Tim Blanks looks back on Valentino’s Spring 2001 Haute Couture collection, which featured “real clothes” and fresh-faced models like Stella Tennant and Carmen Kass. There were suits, cocktail dresses, daywear, evening gowns—everything a woman could ever need, all executed to perfection. “It’s a vision of another time in fashion,” Blanks says. Couture has since become more about spectacle and drama than wearability, but Valentino’s influence remains in Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s collections.
