The Valentino Fall '15 Couture Collection reverts back to a traditional Roman aesthetic. Staying true to this season's ethereal theme, this collection provides a retro Italian spin on empirical looks.

Birthed in 1960, Valentino fashion has always been about making the beauty of Italy wearable. Shamelessly sharing their love for their native city, creative directors Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri created a collection of 60 looks that fuse old-world beauty with a contemporary flair. Mirroring Rome's slightly sinister appeal, the two creatives provided various all black looks riddled with opulent embellishments and gold jewelry.

This Valentino Fall Collection also features the utter luxury of Rome through gilded gold dresses in a variety of lengths, while the frequent use of the arch motif is influenced by the Colosseum's walls.
