I recognize that I have a weakness for Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli ever do better. A well-matched design duo who transfer their skin deep romanticism to their collections. The first impression upon seeing pictures of his parade of haute couture spring-summer 2013 was a bit of déjà vu past collections made but when you see the show moving and the number of pieces of extreme delicacy you realize that they are still one of the kings of couture.
The new couture collection is a garden full of beautiful flowers of extreme delicacy but with absolute certainty that they are strong and garments for women with personality.
The ecru invaded early departures. Long and short dresses, suits jacket perfect structures and passementerie with tangled ways reminds me white wrought iron chairs the gardens and some cafes of Paris.
The layers built on dresses gave majesty to garments. Other layers of lace adorned dresses for a touch mysterious designs.
The black looks shyly into the collection. Tulle dresses with lace, guipure and embroidery with ruffles for cocktail dresses or party.
The ever-present red Valentino couture collections. Strapless dress with full air and minimalist austerity. Fabrics like shantung, silk, organza or chantilly become art designs.
Skirts with jackets or short coats with Jacquard fabrics and details with glitter bring a vision full of demure romanticism to designs in raw or white colors.
The night is soft, tender and spectacular stained dresses with ruffles, lace with glitter details like leaves. Brocade dresses with subtle pastel colors and gold. Silk organza dresses with flowers or colors applied in raw, dusty green, gold ...
Mention part designs all the shoes are set, lined with the same fabric garments.
A collection in which it shows previous working hours and the thoroughness with which they have done each of the pieces.
