Covered Couture: Valentino

Valentino's couture collection for Spring 2009 had many hints of Islamic style to it. First off, I love the knee length embellished coat which would look perfect over wide leg trousers or a satin skirt. Next comes a gorgeous full length brown dress, complete with flowing sleeves for an almost-abaya look. And what I loved the most were the floor-length coats over evening gowns. A little tweaking and they'd be perfect for hijab! This is a style that is quite popular in the Middle East, as shown by designers such as Awatif Al Hai - and looks like they've now inspired mainstream fashion:

I like these! Especially the one in the lower left hand corner :) The fabric in that jilbab is just beautiful masha'Allah! Just have to wear an extra long hijab to cover that decollete and we're home free.

I love the colour of the fourth dress! Wearing long coats over long dresses is very elegant. Sometime you can wear the trench coats over long dresses, which is cool.
