Valentino 2012 Couture

Virgin Suicides meets modern-day Pride and Prejudice.

Valentino’s designers, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, have really brought back the turn of the century with this years Haute Couture collection.

I have to admit, my favorite piece is probably the ivory cape.  I am really loving capes right now. (hello Miu Miu‘s Spring Collection=my favorite) Maybe it has to do with my love for fairytale stories like Little Red Riding Hood, but I find them enchanting.  My mother has just given me this vintage cape she has had for years and I am in love with it.

I am also really loving the maxi dresses which are present in a lot of collections this Spring.  The use of floral prints and embroidered taffeta was highlighted in many of these delicate pieces.  Their accessories consisted of Lace-embroidered gloves, flat passementerie-encrusted slippers and tulle ruffs. These Valentino dresses look incredibly feminine and tailored to perfection. To die!
