Innocence. Spontaneity. Energy. Sentiment.
For Fall/Winter 2014-15, Valentino’s designers were inspired by women artists whose works were deeply rooted in times of change, the revolution and Italian and Roman culture. These women expressed their need to exist, not just to appear, in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Recently I attended the media preview for Valentino’s fall/winter 2014-15 collection in Singapore. I was amazed at the range of the collection, from 1970s style polka dots and block prints to textured surfaces, printed with intarsia and embellishments in a dazzling collection where each piece of clothing looked like a piece of artwork. Metallic butterflies and flowers swayed and were arranged in camouflage patterns on jackets and coats along with lace, flowers and geometric shapes interspersed amongst the prints on skirts and dresses.
Captured below are the runway pictures of my favourite pieces from the collection which I viewed at the media preview. Nothing is quite as special as viewing these amazing pieces in real life but I hope to give you a good sense from the runway pictures below.

At the media preview, I managed to snap a few close-ups of the beautiful details of the embellishments on the pieces. As you will see below, intricate lace featured alongside metallic butterflies and turkey feathers on the most gorgeous of jackets, dresses and gowns.
This amazing collection will be arriving in Valentino stores worldwide from August 2014.
