VALENTINO FALL 2013 COLLECTION
“…we believe that couture can be a private luxury—not just for the red carpet or special occasions.”
Maria Grazia Chiuri
Designer, Valentino Fall 2013 collection
Valentino’s Fall 2013 collection, made headlines with the slim, Renaissance dress with long sleeves so many young women loved. This collection affirmed their authority in the decorative, breathtaking arts of evening dressing. Long ivory and gold lace, beige velvet, silver-sprigged, cloudy gray chiffon gown under a tweed floor-length cape dominated the runway.
Special attention was drawn to the daywear. The general theme of the collection was the 17th-18th-century tradition of displaying shells, sea creatures, taxidermy and archaeological oddities. The ancient Roman carvings made their way into many of the clothes, and inspired the mother-of-pearl, jeweled golden clasps cast in the shape of signs of the zodiac. Yet the most compelling things for day were an amazing caped coat and dress in camel double-faced cashmere with neat, rounded shoulders, which had a fluidity in movement; a cape-backed gray tweed sheath dress; a herringbone pencil skirt with a matching coat and lace blouse. Elegance for day was a main motif of the collection.
Enjoy some of the collection items and choose the ones, which match your style and way of living the most.
