Maria Grazia Chiuri and her design partner Pierpaolo Piccioli brought an emotional Valentino to his feet as their show closed the Spring 2013 couture season. Inspired by wrought-iron gates and secret labyrinths of formal gardens, the duo stuck true to the brand’s identity with show-stopping artisanal dresses adorned with hand painted organza, luxe embroidery, hand-rolled crepe piping, stamped wool, and intricate crystal beading. Dramatic and romantic perfection.
