FASHION | PFW S/S 2014 : VALENTINO


“Imagined ethnic groups” were cited as an inspiration behind Valentino’s opulent collection. Designers Piccioli and Chiuri placed couture-quality embroideries on the finest fabrics, shaping them into garments that were sophisticated, contemporary, and profoundly appealing. – [StyleSight]

"It's a fashion opera. A show has to be a show." Even as flat sandals adorned with golden scarabs reasserted the realness of the collection, some of the long black lace gowns embellished with brightly colored details looked not all that unlike costumes or indigenous dress—elevated to the hautest levels, of course. It's exactly this sort of stagecraft that has the world's most photographed young women vying to wear Valentino; they were all there today arrayed in the front row. And they'll rush to get the more ornate pieces here: a dress patched together from silvery squares that looked like armor, a monastic romper (interestingly, not an oxymoron chez Valentino) in organza embroidered with tiny strips of leather. - [Style.com]
