VALENTINO. In these stressful days of gloomy weather and Oxford overflowing workload, what is more soothing than allowing myself to escape reality a little while and immerse into Valentino’s whimsical world? Valentino, for me, is everything angelic, feline, pristine, created with the most sophisticated embroidery on the softest, silkiest fabric. Each piece seems to imply a story, a fairy tale that celebrates the female body. Each collection is woven by a consistent theme, from musical composure of the opera in Spring 2014 couture, flowers and underwater creatures of Italian patrimonies in Spring Summer 2015 Ready-to-wear, to the royal white in the most recent New York flagship’s haute couture collection. What feasts for the eyes!
So… let us blur the line between reality and fantasy, slide ourselves into one of these artworks, and dream away.
