Valentino Couture Spring 2014: a tale of 55 operas

24/01/2014

Valentino Couture Spring 2014
The hand painted magic woods, flowers and butterflies designed by Maurizio Varamo covered the walls and floors of the salons at the Hotel de Salomon Rotschild as if a beautiful welcoming to the gardens of Eden.

The dresses glided down the runway – full skirts sweetly bouncing with every step, long layers of luxurious fabrics floating in the air – each inspired by a character from an opera or a Saint-Saens’ Carnaval des animaux creature.

This collection wasn’t just about the smoky gemstones, guipure lace, lavish embroideries, ethereal tulle or lustrous silk, but the beautiful story inspired by music and time and then created by human hands for us to enjoy, a true couture – unique, unforgettable, glorious and breathtaking.

  8. Ох, не предать словами мои эмоции от увиденного. Вот это коллекция, вот это волшебство! Просто божественно. Особенно платье с лесными мотивами и невесомое с вставками из нотной тетради. Невероятно красиво! Мне кажется в таком платье и крылья вырастут сами собою)
