Valentino Pre-Spring/Summer 2013

Leave a comment

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have done it again. They’ve taken the history and legacy of the maison Valentino into their hands and created yet another collection that is, at the same time, tribute and proposal. From what we can see of the Valentino Pre-Spring 2013 line on the Vogue UK website, the floral theme that served as a guiding thread for their previous collection is still there but in a livelier, brighter, bolder take – more flowers, less lace; more colour, less cream.

It’s a step away from antique romantic lace roses and towards the world of fairytale gardens and magical forests, with femininity and grace. It’s delicate yet powerful, soft yet strong, and it’s definitely everything I could have asked for.

If you’re not pining for that perfectly-constructed grass-green backless dress, you need to double-check your priorities.
