Valentino Spring 2014 Couture

Valentino is the show I always look forward to the most and the elegance, grace and whimsical aura of the 2014 collection didn’t disappoint. Each dress was inspired by a classical opera with the opening dress emblazoned with notes from Giuseppe Verdi’s 1853 opera “La Traviata.” Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli channelled theatrical narrative with magnificent workmanship as they recreated the most iconic operas through lavish fabrics and enchanting details. The collection was rich in tulle, lace, silk and feathers with many dresses adorned in embellishments whilst others were minimalistic; stripped bare to reveal the elegant poise of a crafted silhouette. Delicate and earthy shades reminiscent of classical rome floated down the runway to the sound of violin strokes and against a backdrop designed by the set dressers at the The Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. Dresses were poetically artistic with embroidered deers, lions and peacocks featuring throughout whilst white feathers enveloped a ballerinas dress to symbolise the graceful swan. The collection captured all the romance and serenity that Valentino is renowned for whilst paying a hauntingly enchanting homage to the grand opera.

 What did you think of the collection?
