Valentino Resort 2013

by goingvogueonline

Time after time I find myself falling in love with Valentino’s latest collections. I love how the classic label manages to stay true to its roots, as well as keeping up with the latest trends (see the green open back dress), all while managing to keep things frilly and fun. This resort collection in particular showcases one of my favorite silhouettes: the 60’s swing dress. This collection included all things Valentino: tulle gowns, princess silhouettes, flared skirts, and multi-hued floral prints.

We imagined a playful and optimistic collection, using color as a structural, rather than decorative, elements – Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Valentino
