The name is French and means "cloud".

- It debuted in Spring Summer 2008.

-This was the last season Valentino Garavani himself created. The season was a collection of Valentino staples: floral renessance gowns mixed with tailored suits, accesorised with big hats and of course the bows.

- The original Nuages were metallic leather (solids and patterns). It was not until later that the popular coated canvas Nuage was created.

- Nuages have been made in all types of materials: leather, suede, crinkled leather, straw, coated canvas (lacca), denim, lace and more!.

- In addition, the Nuage comes in two different sizes, a "medium" and a "large". The dimensions of the medium are 11½"W X 10"H X 4½"D. The dimensions of the large are 13 1/2"H x 14"W x 5"D.

- The original Nuages were always the large size. The medium Nuage was created in 2009.

Below are some of the original Nuages that appeared in the Spring Summer 2008 runway show.
