Valentino autumn/winter 2013-14

Finally, I have some time to make up for new posts. The Milan Fashion Week is over, now we had a Paris Fashion Week. Today I would like to present you the collection of Valentino for autumn/winter 2013-2014.
What did Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli say about this collection? 'Magical realism'.
What is the inspiration?  The paintings by Flemish masters - 'the glorification of everyday life'.
What is the leitmotiv of the collection? White collars. White collars for short and monk-lenghted dresses.
The shape of the dresses reminds us the Puritan and Protestant people form the 18th century, the so called Calvinist simplicity.
Models without make up, with their hair swept into a long side plait are the same as form the Flemish paintings.
What impressed me the most in this collection is the blue. The colour and the pattern on fabric was inspired by Delft ceramics. It is a very beautiful collection and the idea was as simple as the Dolce & Gabbana's Byzantine collection.
Starting with the photos from the above - presenting the little black dresses and long black coats, they are similar to the lately said Flamish paintings. Plaits, flowers are some kind of 'otherness' from this collection but compund in one whole thing.
