Valentino reaches back to the Renaissance

Who hasn’t fantasized about wearing a Renaissance-era power suit? I certainly have, but if you’re an haute couture line, you can put your fantasies into production and show them to the world.

There’s just something about those three looks that make me think about a nice structured blazer. I’m a little heavier up top, and I wore a lot of blazers when I worked as an archivist, but of course, nothing as embellished as the Valentino jackets. Click on the links above to see the full looks, which I’m assuming you could mix and match. Putting the matching tops and bottoms would be too much for me, but I love the shape of the arms and shoulders in these three looks.

I’m a little bit obsessed with how so if you want to see more images, head over to and just drool away.
