Valentino Spring 2013 – triumphant couture

Posted in fashion, and Style & Travel

valentino-1Every now and then a Couture collection comes along that’s such perfection, we just have to share it.

These dresses, for Valentino, bring every fairytale we ever read to life. With just one gown, each of us could be the ethreal princess or wicked enchantress of those fables. Engaged in the battle between good and evil. Fighting our crusade looking elegant and  gorgeous.


Maria Grazia Chiuri and her design partner Pierpaolo Piccioli  have created a fantasy of dark and light, good girl gone bad, and bad girl redeemed. The detail in these dresses is heart-stopping – inspired by the wrought-iron gates and secret labyrinths of formal gardens. And they use hand painted organza, luxe embroidery, hand-rolled crepe piping, stamped wool, and intricate crystal beading to romantic perfection.

    I’m not a big Valentino fan (nor that I could afford it) but I must agree with Annamaria: triple WOW
