Valentino Spring 2014 – Bravo, Bravo.
The Valentino ready to wear collection for Spring 2014 is utterly breathtaking. I want to be a Valentino woman – serene and silhouetted in mythic draping and adorned by the most skilled handicraft.
Apparently Valentino designers, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli delved deep into the costume library at the Opera house in Rome. They researched traditional peasant embellishment while keeping in mind visions of Maria Callas as Medea; dressed in stark and stately robes, and then back to the studio to translate heavy, very adorned fabrics into something light and wearable.
I would have loved to be the one designing these textiles and working with such artists! Bravissimo.
See the entire runway show at style.com, below are some of my favorites.
