This nude, red and multi-coloured 'Ballet Russe' silk dress is from the brand's AW16 collection whereby Maria and Pierpaulo's penchant for dance was illustrated. Crafted in Italy from sumptuous silk, the piece was cut with an A-line shape, a boat neck and split short sleeves. Elevated with an all-over geometric-inspired pattern, we are styling our Valentino dress with red suede heeled sandals and our favourite Azzedine Alaia clutch bag to our next Ceilidh (after all, the mood of this creation gives us plenty to dance about and we at Browns love a good Dashing White Sergeants).

MEET THE DESIGNER
The Browns' Edit of Valentino emanates the romantic and timeless elegance of the world-renowned fashion designer's Ready-to-Wear and Resort collections. Crowned as ‘The Sheik of Chic’, Valentino Garavani displayed an early interest in fashion and relocated to Paris to study at the École des Beaux-Arts and the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Upon return to Rome, Valentino set up his own label and debuted his first couture collection in 1962 which garnered attention from the likes of Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn. Adored by notable socialists, aristocrats and celebrities, the Italian mastermind spent the following decades perfecting his craft and becoming a true innovator of the feminine form, for which he was awarded a French Legion of Honor medal in 2006. Since retiring from the iconic fashion house, the time-honoured craftsmanship and artisan techniques discovered by Valentino live on through the current creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.
