Ancient Rome

Valentino Couture AW1415

The Valentino by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli Couture Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show was a tribute to Ancient Rome and to painters such as Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

Other Ancient Rome-inspired collections : Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2003 (the eclectic references of this show included Ancient Rome), Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2014 (the Guido Palau-styled braided chignons of this show were influenced by Ancient Rome).
