Valentino Fall 2013

Design duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino looked to Flemish Old Masters and Dutch painter Vermeer as their main inspirations for fall. The designers wanted to frame the face, with focuses on the neckline with the finest leather and lace embroidered collars. The real show stoppers were the gorgeous gowns in China blue prints inspired by Delft ceramics that Valentino himself had used in a dress in 1968.

    Finally a collection that really impresses and inspires. You can see that each piece has been so carefully thought through and based on a genius creative impulse. Those blue prints are particularly remarkable, but the dark floral pieces and lace numbers are also amazing.

    Lots of them are amazing! The sleveless ones on the 8th and last row are very Oscars (or, something that I would wear to the ceremony, instead of some of the awful dresses they sometimes wear…)

    Beautiful collection…

    I am Dutch and I just want to say here that Vermeer is not a Flemish painter, but a Dutch painter from Delft.

    Wow! This is what fashion is about! Looking at shows like Celine never makes me wonder what women love about because to me it s not flattering to the female body ( being slim or curvy) but these Valentino collection makes me dream! This is why I love fashion so much!
