Valentino Haute Couture spring/summer 2013

 Dresses in the Valentino Haute Couture show were covered in layers of crepe and tulle, ever so slightly voluminous and ethereal. In particular, the sheer gown above features a sensual mix of almost nude organza with an overlay of intricate red piping.  According to, “it took 500 hours of hand-rolling to produce the piping. And that was just one of the outfits that featured the effect. One roller apparently developed carpal tunnel syndrome during the production of the collection.” Old school classic pieces still walked the runway in the form of cape dresses and garden party dresses..

Haute couture collection is inspired by enchanted garden. 

Like a garden in full bloom, multiplication increases the sense of wonder: tiny ruching abounds on a skirt, flowers blossom on the short balloon dress, and hand-painted beading holds tiny ruffles in place on an ankle-length dress. Impalpable embellishments are subtle, materials such as cady, triple organza and tulle are light yet crisp creating solid silhouettes.
Shades of ivory, beige, white, and aqua compose a diaphanous, delicate symphony.. urprising carnal red accents emerge to remind us that even in an oniric dimension, contrast is the essence of modernity.. hope you like it.. :)
