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!
