Valentino Couture 2013 Spring Collection







I'm light-headed over Valentino's Couture Spring 2013 collection.
It harkens back to a mysterious and romantic time that exists forever locked in the night before summer.  Drawing inspiration from a baroque-esque dream world, the dresses cut an elegant figure in lace, organza, chiffon and flowers.
Says Hamish Bowles from Vogue.com:


     { Chiuri and her partner in design, Pierpaolo Piccioliwere looking at the idea of formal and secret gardens, with mazes, ancient mosaics, and romantic flower plantings. They conceived an idea of padded rouleaux, scrolled into raised decorative patterns on the surface of the fabric, to suggest the elaborate wrought-iron gates hiding the mystery within. }
