Fashion week has not particularly been covered on my blog this season, and thats because to be perfectly honest I was waiting for someone to be so good I HAD to put them up…in struts Valentino.
Layers upon layers of chiffon fabrics embroidered with stunning heritage florals, birds, roses and butterflies reminded me of a magical secret garden. Though the traditional themes – archaic European references like the flowing peasant skirts, voluminous sleeves and delicate lace – were apparent, contemporary prints were also weaved into the fall creations to bring the collection into the modern day.
Bold red hearts, oversized checks, huge dotty patterns and vibrant stripes contrasted with the classic influences beside them.
Whichever way you looked at this collection, pure loveliness was the overarching result…
