Dusty Pastels and Intricate Lacework at Valentino

Dusty Pastels and Intricate Lacework at Valentino

Valentino, RST13, Paris.

The Valentino collection for Resort 2013 contrasted a selection of delicate laces in sorbet shades with graphic stripes and a leopard print spot. The laces and embellishments were used in a variety of ways, from laces appliqued in pieces over a sheer backing, to delicate beading that appeared to have been engineered to each cut piece of fabric.

The silhouettes were predominantly classic shapes drawing attention to the models waists with use of tucks and flared skirts to mould the fabric around the body.
