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.
Mixing some of her best sellers from seasons past, Amanda Thomas of Luv AJ has launched a collection of bracelets, rings, and necklaces in 14 gorgeous colors. We absolutely love the idea of pigmented metal, especially layered on in a rainbow of hues like olive, purple, and navy!
