A cashmere cape with a chiffon blouse and a day-glo pink loose-legged trouser. 'Et la messe était dite,' as the French would say. Which literally means mass has been said - and could most certainly be said while wearing almost any of the looks presented at Valentino’s haute couture show. There was a distinct Vatican influence in the collection, expressed not just through the capes, but also through a selection of black-and-white nun-like evening dresses, chasuble-like embroideries and an unusually secluded atmosphere.
