For Spring 2013 Couture, Valentino Takes Us For A Stroll In Their Garden Stroll In Their

Apparently the obvious elements of Spring managed to afflict a few designers including Valentino.  For their Spring 2013 Couture collection, Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were literal in their interpretation yet not so much.  Hedge labyrinths were implicated by the arrangement of lace strips on a Fifties skirt while others tried to give us the park at night through twinkling floral hints (look 3, first row + second row). Some even tried to mimic fencing which looked like lace as shown in the first look below along the shoulders + décolletage.

Although most of the dresses were fragile like flower petals, sheer and delicate, there were also a few that were very structural including look 4 above, second row and the two below – Love the retro feel of this red dress.

Overall, a very beautiful collection and definitely camera-friendly for the remaining red carpet events coming up.
