Featuring lace collars, long floral dresses, and scalloped details, the Valentino F/W Fall ’13 show featured beautiful and intricate creations that highlighted a chic and playful spin on ultra-feminine clothing. There is no question that these clothes are exquisitely made, and just a couple of steps short of Haute Couture, and Valentino went for a much more frilly look than in years past. With lace collars and cuffs, the collection will be sought after come fall, and the looks are very versatile for a multitude of occasions. Combining cashmere and lace gave off a delicate and lady-like image, while the leather dresses and unexpected pops of color jazzed things up. The oriental-inspired floral patterns on both the long and shorter dresses were an unexpected delight, and overall there were plenty of gowns that I expect to be gracing the red carpet in the fall!
