Valentino - Spring 2013

Fit for a princess

Valentino spring/summer 2013 had Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli create a veritable collection fit for a princess. The soft color palette was accentuated with pale pinks, warm navy blue, black and white, with delicate prints of blossoming flowers or detailed beaded embroidery.

The silhouettes of the collection were feminine and understated, ranging from full-length gowns to modern shorts and jackets, which allowed the technical shapes, ornate cut-outs, and textiles to shine. Aristocratic laces were some of the star textures used by the designers, as they were shown laser cut, swinging freely, and as a lady-like camisole with a chic black pants suit.

Peeks of skin kept the collection fresh, seen through pinhole details or sheer floral textiles. The intimate collection was a beautiful representation of the heritage of Valentino, while also paving the path for the future of the brand.
