Immediately after watching a video of the Valentino Haute Couture collection for Spring/Summer 2013, I was left in awe. So much so, that I just felt I had to do a post on it (Being the kind blogger that I am, I've even included a video, so for anyone who hasn't had the privilege to watch this truly spectacular paradigm of beauty, romance and tremendous craftmanship, now you can).
Taking inspiration from secret gardens, mazes, ancient mosaics, and the romance evoked from floral paintings, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli captured the meaning of Haute Couture - an elicitation of the beauty and mystery which this profound fashion secrecy beholds. As beautifully poised models stepped out onto the runway, the immediacy of the designers inspirations were absolute. An array of beautiful fabrics and cuts, adorned in parisian latticework, floral embroidery, and lace demonstrated the true craftsmanship which had gone into each work of art.
What are your thoughts on the collection?
(Sorry for the repost,despite describing myself as a 'kind' blogger, the video wasn't even showing up! haha)
