Carmen Marc Valvo’s sophisticated lady has gone back to finishing school. This season, the designer found inspiration in school girl uniforms and transformed them into chic ensembles that never lost their whimsy. Colorful plaids, pointed collars, and rounded spectacles were youthful touches, adding vibrancy to Valvo’s usually stuffy creations. The highlight of this collection were the luxurious fun furs because there is no other way to keep warm then nestled in bright patterned minks. While Carmen Marc Valvo’s evening separates were more innovative, his sheer cut-out gowns were sexier and sleeker. FW15 injected a dose of joie de vivre into Valvo’s repertoire. Hopefully he will keep this genius streak of stunning designs going.
