Runway Pre-Fall 2015 Valentino by Maria Grazia Chiuri & Pierpaolo Piccioli Blue Mirror Jacket

The Pre-fall collection was extensive as far as the number of looks that walked the runway. The twin of this jacket was Look 64 in the presentation and there were still looks that followed it. This is from the era that both Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were designing for the label and for this particular collection they brought in Celia birtwell, the British textile designer and ex-wife of the late Ossie Clark, as well as the Italian Pop Artist Giosetta Fioroni as collaborators. This gave the collection a magical quirky feel with all of those creatives minds adding their own spin into the mix. 

This is a great jacket that adds an instant pop to any outfit and makes it special. The base of the jacket is a deep blue silk fabric that has an almost light canvas finish to it. Then onto that are hundred of little mirrors in various sizes that are either round square or oblong. These are all set within a sewn embroidered edging or against a little blue fabric backdrop and they cover the entire jacket. I love how the different size of mirrors are set in a way to follow and highlight the lines of the jacket. When you have this on they catch the light and reflect everything around you and it is amazing. The jacket itself is easy to wear. The sleeves are slightly cropped and the jacket is more of a skimming shape through the body. It does have shape and comes in slightly at the waist but it is meant to feel more easy than structured and fitted. The collar is rounded and notched and adorned with mirrors as well. Two big top-stitched pockets sit on the front of each hip for the perfect finishing detail. It is the perfect jacket to just slip on over just about anything. Excellent condition.

Fully lined with a handset blue silk and closes at the front with hidden set buttons. The pockets on the front are functional. Tagged a modern Valentino 8. It appears to have been worn very little, if at all.
